Hi,
CentOS is a community maintained distribution that is compiled from Redhat sources to be as close as is possible to the current RHEL release. While Fedora is an upstream distribution maintained by Redhat to develop and test software for RHEL.

If you are looking for a rock-solid distribution with similar characteristics to RHEL, without the support and expense then CentOS is a good choice. If you want cutting edge and do not mind the occasional inconvenience with potentially buggy under-tested software then go for fedora. Hope this helps.
