AV Awards 2008 Finalists Announced
Adrian J Cotterill, Editor-in-Chief
AV Interactive magazine refused our offer to help judge these awards yet again – it’s gonna sound incredibly arrogant but from a global perspective you will not find anyone better qualified IMPARTIALLY to do so.
Last year we were very critical of their “Digital Signage Project Of The Year Finalists” and even did our own alternative award winners
Anyway here we are again 12 months later with Mr White-Van-Man choosing things like ‘digital signage company of the year’ and ‘digital media project of the year’
We got this list from AV’s blog so it may not yet be 100% accurate and we have only listed our industry relevant categories but here goes…
The short list of finalists for this year’s AV Awards has now been drawn up. Judging was concluded at the end of August and the awards dinner and presentation take place at the Park Lane Hilton, London, on October 10.

A company who has only sold one licence in the US as company of the year? and made redundancy’s after substanial losses? Interesting nominee!

A full list of our judges, and the criteria for winning the awards will be published on the night of the event itself (to do so before would be unprofessional). So you will be able to see for yourself they are far from being the ‘white van men’ you think they are, but are respected figures with the a-v industry with decades of experience in a range of companies.

Speaking as one of the judges for AV Awards (but I’m not saying which categories I judged this year), I suppose I must therefore be a White Van Man. If I did have a white van it would have something witty like ‘ALSO AVAILABLE IN WHITE’ written on the dirt on the back. And where else would I keep my furry dice?
I assume our correspondent is concerned lest the working classes get involved in his areas of specialism. How did he know I keep coal in the bath?
