And how many of those awards have they ever used in marketing?

The bigger ones not many but small to medium a lot do use it in marketing be it on it their websites or otherwise

Also interesting to note that the festivals you listed as selling out this year a lot of those won an award last year and advertised the fact on websites etc. They might mean diddly squat (however if you were crap and people didnt enjoy it I wouldnt have thought they would vote for you) in the reasons why you won it but you can't hide from the fact they are a good tool for marketing. Plus they look quite pretty!

I hadn't realised that - although all of those that did had already sold out the year before too, and some of those who sold out didn't win anything.

I understand the need to market your event, and they're a good marketing tool.

si t - nope

Yes but some mentioned had larger capacities this year and a couple sold out in record time. Some didnt win anything but the majority listed won something.

Anyway enough of this - I enjoyed it, off to do some real work Posted Image

Would be intrigued to hear how you've sussed out a way to do awards that's completely equitable to all - can't get my head around it with some events being on the same day and varying hugely in style etc etc

I'm more than happy to pass my idea onto any organisation that's fully independent of all festivals so that they can pick it up and do it. There's no point it being done by anyone else, else many of the same problems will exist within that idea as exist within the awards that exist already.

Im really looking forward to it - have chosen to come over to you instead of my local place - been meaning to make the journey for ages just never slotted in as well. Although might be a bit rough, Craig Charles the night before Posted Image
