Pop Ups, Insanely, Still Deemed Worthy of Award Consideration
The Web Marketing Association has announced it's accepting entries for the 2006 Internet Advertising Competition Awards, the ad industry's award competition dedicated to online advertising. Awards will be presented within each of the industry categories and advertising formats such as online ad banners, interstitials, rich media ads, email, online newsletter campaigns, microsite/landing page, integrated ad campaigns and even ads the client didn't choose.
Unfortunately, oddly and sadly, pop-ups are also included in the competition. No industry entity should acknowledge this bastion of marketing idiocy which amounts to nothing more than utter disregard for human preference and which represents the lowest form of scum this industry has yet to rid itself of.
