Now, the winner has been picked, and it's Connor McKenna, a Gulf War veteran, who claims he spotted "something" in the loch last year.
The encounter occurred on September 15, when McKenna was driving along the A82 road by the loch.
He was a mile south of Urquhart Castle when he saw a 15-20ft object in the water that was dark in color. He told the Inverness Courier:
"It was long enough, whatever it was, to leave a crest. A wave broke on the left-hand side and I wondered if it was a log or a tree, but then it disappeared."
McKenna didn't know what he had seen. He didn't tell his wife at the time because he didn't want her to think he was crazy. He did tell two other people, who laughed at him. Although he regularly drives along the road he was on, he has never seen anything else like what he saw last September.
McKenna did eventually tell Gary Campbell about his sighting. Campbell keeps an official register of sightings of the monster.
Congratulations, McKenna, for the best Nessie sighting of 2015.
