The US Search Awards held alongside Pubcon this past October were a big success, with lots of effort by the judges to narrow very competitive fields. Bing was asked to participate in the judging for the US Awards and it was exciting stuff. Lots of work, but thoroughly worthwhile. The European Awards have been around a bit longer and competition is sure to be tough this year.

Bottom line: Review the criteria and if you think someone is worthy of a shout out, submit them! With over 20 categories, you’re bound to know someone who qualifies!
