Can You Help the Swampies?

Voting begins next week for the 2010 Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. All 10 categories in the competition have now been announced. Some terrific nominations have already come in for many of them, but we still need your help to make sure that all the candidates are the right ones, and that each is presented in the best possible light.

So if you find anything missing from 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. If you see a nomination without an explanation, please add a good one! Got photos of any of the nominees? Please send them!

This Sunday at midnight, nominations will close for the first two award categories: Favorite Houston Design Cliché and Best Teardown. On Monday, we’ll announce the official slate of nominees for those awards and open them for voting. For the next 2 categories we’ll close nominations Monday night and open the voting on Tuesday, then continue that way through the week with the rest of the categories.

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