The IT Awards Update went out yesterday and included news about some significant changes in the way that the 2011 nominees will be notified.
Doug Strassler interviewed Executive Director, Nick Micozzi (see the full interview here):
DS: There are going to be some significant changes to nominee announcement this year.
NM: It's pretty exciting - there are two big changes: 1) Nobody will know who the nominees are until they are announced at the party on the 18th, and 2) we're cutting the admission price in half – down to only $10. Since we’re not informing the nominees in advance, we’re not giving out any comps to the nom party this year.* But to off-set that, admission will only be $10.
What do you think? Do you like nominees knowing in advance of the public announcement or do you favor the surprise.
We want to hear your opinion.
