Not sure about being corrupt, but there has always been a lot of negative feeling toward an awards where companies can sponsor a category, sit on the judging panel, and also be a nominee.

And the other issue has been the quality of many of the nominated sites – previously there was no consideration given to web standards of any description.

Best of luck with the awards,
Richard

As it turns out I am building a website for a different Irish awards ceremony at present (not to do with web design). They wouldn’t dream of having nominates pay!

@Ken: You couldn’t have said it better.

Still though, it’s nice to see the usual bedfellows in there being shortlisted. I feel sorry for any of the genuine entrants who forked out money to submit their sites to this utter farce.
