The ASFA has reported the winners of the 2007 Chesley Awards for best science fiction, fantasy and horror art. Voting was, we are told, very close this year and several of the awards came down to decimal point differences in the final rankings. The Chesley Awards use a ranked ballot.

NB, the awards are announced in 2008 for the previous year's body of work (I know, it sounds a little out of date, but it isn't: promise: and the art is fab!).
