Is there a limit to how many we can nominate in each category?

Re: Arch Boston Awards Category Nominations

Hey, how about along with the Best of 2009 awards we start thinking about Best and Worst of the Decade categories? Like a Top 10, Top 20, Bottom 10, Top 10 with the biggest impact on life regardless of architectural merit, ect....

Ron, there's no limit. Nominate as many as you like. The most popular nominations will make it to the voting phase.

Kz, I like this idea. What decade categories should there be? Just Best/Worst 10?

Re: Welcome to the 2009 archBOSTON Awards!

What about building/street renovations? Would that fall under new development?

Idea: no one liked the idea of publicizing these last year. But surely we could at least generate some buzz on local blogs? Something relatively informal.

I don't know if people didn't like the idea of publicizing the awards last year, but maybe most were like me and really didn't know where to start. I'm all for spreading the word on these. Anyone have any ideas?

local blogs like universalhub or bostonist might be receptive
