Some “bests” better than others?

A number of arts organizations are making the push now for your votes in The Indy Channel’s A-List competition. Soon we’ll be seeing Nuvo’s Best of picks and the latest superlatives from Indianapolis Monthly.

Question: What is the value of such awards to you (whether you are exclusively a patron or are directly involved in the arts)?

Do you trust or value the awards more if they are decided by committee rather than anonymous voting?

And, finally, do you think that Indy is ready for (or has any use for) a theater awards program such as the Barrymore Awards in Philadelphia or the Joseph Jefferson Awards in Chicago? (Yes, I know, we have the Encore Awards, but those don’t include professional theaters.)
