Winner in Webby Awards, Corporate communications: UPM Forest Life
The world is full of ridiculous awards about websites. It gotta be a good business to create a competition and ceremony about web. First you require a fee from companies to get nominated. Full the ceremonies with sponsors and sell tickets for unreasonable price. To get every penny out of it there has to be a book about the ‘winners’ afterwards.
This one is “the Oscar’s of the web with over 10,000 websites from over 60 countries” plaa plaa plaa.
How about sending me and other team members a ticket to New York with Hollywood filmstar type of -treatment in best hotels, personal limusine driver and endless flood of Champagne. Then I would compare it to Oscars other then just another exploitation of idiots. ;)
Ok, that was a bit too harsh. These awards probably helps with the selling and they look nice on workers CV. It’s also a very good way to enlarge the audience for the site. I still think there’s just too many awards on web these days. One would be enough for the global scale.
