And the Nominees for the 2008 Swampies Are . . .

Some terrific nominations have already come in for the Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. But we still need your help! Voting begins next week. Before then, we want to make sure that all the candidates are the right ones, and that each is presented in the best possible light.

So if you see something missing in any award category, please add your nomination now! Or if you think you can improve on any of the explanations submitted with a nomination you like, feel free to write in with your own better presentation.

Early Monday morning, the nominations will close for the first two award categories: Favorite Houston Design Cliché and Best Project Cancellation or Delay. Then we’ll announce the official slate of nominees for those awards and open them for voting. We’ll close nominations and open the voting for the next three categories on Tuesday. There’ll be three more on Wednesday, and the last two on Thursday.

There’s still plenty of time to contribute. Add your nominations to the comments below the post announcing each category. Or send them to us in an email. Who are the contenders in Houston real estate this year? What deserves recognition?
