The awards themselves are on 29 Nov.
Firstly, congrats to all the peeps nominated – no matter your opinion on awards generally, a bit of free publicity and a Â£2,000 cheque is reason enough to try and win one of these.Â A few thoughts on the nominations though:
- Does SEO (Internet Arrow) count as ‘creative’ these days?
- Just how is business consultancy (Bubblequest) ‘creative’?
- Pay-per-click advertising (Adwords Ltd)? ‘Creative’? Eh?
3 of the 14 companies nominated (21%) have got me scratching my head and wondering why they’re there. No offence to the companies nominated, of course, but did the organisers not receive any more relevant applications? Is that why there’s only two nominations for the Birmingham business development award?
*Update* – Parboo (not her real name) has noticed that there’s been no announcement of nominations for the Newcomer Award.
