Okay, there is no ceremony, no article in some big publication but we know these are not that easy to gain. the awards are free to submit to but from then on they are at the mercy of other designers who judge them on a number of criteria elements.
A little imagination, something different is what is required, the challenge to not go along with the industry norm. The true bonus is a fantastic inbound link for the client whos site was submitted, an increase in traffic (SEO) which via reciprocal links helps us, everyone is a winner!
