There are so many categories to choose from but don’t forget that these are just the first wave of nominations to be revealed. The second round will be announced soon so if your favourite still isn’t in the running then fear not as there is still time for them to be noticed.

Voting for all of the categories above is now officially open and there are lots of ways for you to get involved. You can vote for your favourites on the Teen Choice website or with Twitter by tweeting the hashtag for the category alongside your nominee’s name. If the nominee has a Twitter account then make sure to “@” them or if they don’t then you can put a hashtag in front of their name. It’s that easy.

You can check out more information about voting and the official rules here.

The 2017 Teen Choice Awards will air live on Sunday 13th August at 8pm ET on FOX.
