Questions about WPUK Awards 2014 

Users of this site are being asked for their views on the planned WPUK Awards 2014.

Details of the awards are listed on WordCamp Bournemouth UK 2014 content ideas, copied below:

It is proposed to instigate annual awards for UK originated WordPress related activities involving nominations and voting by the WPUK Discuss community before the conference. The results of the voting will be announced and the awards will be made during conference. Categories for awards could include the following, all of which must be built on or for WordPress and originate in the UK:

  • Best overall website
  • Best website content
  • Best web application
  • Best plugin
  • Most creative use of WordPress

Details are fluid at the moment, but the idea is to involve registered users of this site as integral to the process, with the awards being announced during the last session at Bournemouth.

Part of that process is gathering views on the details of how this can work.

Therefore, it would be great to get comments on the plan before midday on Sunday 18 May 2014.

Here’s some questions to consider:

  • Are the award categories appropriate?
  • Should nominations be able to be made by those who have built the site, plugin etc?
  • Can nominations be made by agencies and companies?
  • Will nominations require more than one supporter?
  • What do we mean by UK originated in this context?
  • Is there a good definition of a web application in the WordPress world?

Anyway, there’s a few questions to start the discussion – looking forward to your feedback!
