Usually everyone can be nominated if he meets the criteria. And there are a few
categories, so everyone get's a chance to become nominated.
But usually it's not a honour to win or even to become nominated because it's not a positive prize. So this negative advertising brings only a negative image. And that's what most persons and firms are afraid of.
How does it work? First there is a nomination period. After that, a jury selects the best (or worst - choose the proper word) candidate. And then the winners are presented and can receive their prize. If they want them.
Last year noone of the winner were present. So the awards were handed over [G] to people who tried to bring them to the winner.
As I wrote, noone of the winner were present this year. But this year the
prizes disappeared in the
Donaukanal (a dirty river which is running through Vienna, located near the
Flex [G]). The prizes walked or were kicked [G] into the Donaukanal and maybe that's symbolic
for the persons and organisations which don't respect other people's privacy:
They should disappear (it doesn't have to be a dirty mud, but if they come from
there and feel at home, why not go there?) and if they are not doing it, they
have to be kicked.
