Which AWARDS Show Should the AWARD Go to?

Caught in the Middle

Somehow we’ve gotten ourselves into the position of acting as the go-between for three entities which are USAcreate.com Awards, the Platinum PIAs Awards and the Big Apple Awards. Or maybe another way to put this, is that I have been asked by the Platinum PIAs Awards to work it out between the USAcreate.com Awards and the Big Apple Awards. Before I lose you for good, please be patient. It is a very unusual situation.

What Should the Name Be?

You see, since 2010 the Platinum PIAs Awards have recognized small businesses and artists of all kinds who were making a difference in their communities. And then in 2019, after a decade of the awards show being known as the Platinum PIAs or even just PIAs, they decided it was time for a new chapter and a name change. The first name change idea mentioned was the Big Apple Awards. Whereupon USAcreate.com, the principals in the organization having helped out the PIAs over the years, suggested that a accurate name would be the USAcreate.com Awards.

Since 2010

And just when the awards were going to officially become the USAcreate.com Awards, including even the announcement on the Platinum PIAs site, the folks who were pro “Big Apple Awards” jumped in and made the point that their moniker was a better choice for the awards because most of the awards were given to those who resided in “The Big Apple.” The Big Apple is a name for Manhattan, NY, USA. Big Apple contenders further pointed out that USAcreate.com didn’t even have a website for their proposed “awards identity” and only had a page on their site which was hard to find.

What Do YOU Think?

If this was up to you, who would you pick as the company to have the awards mantle passed to? Would it be USAcreate.com or BigAppleAwards.com? Please let us know!
