The Swampies Need Your Help

All 7 categories in the 2012 Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate have now been announced. Voting begins next week. Terrific nominations have already come in for many of the categories, 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 2 award categories: Favorite Houston Design Cliché and Best Demolition. For the next 2 categories we’ll close nominations Monday night, then continue through the week with the rest of the categories. On Monday, we’ll announce the official slate of nominees for the first award category and open it for voting. We’ll do the same for another category each day — until we’ve made our way through them all.

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?
