A few points:
2007 IF awards are for products released in 2006. Just like the 2007 Oscar winners will for movies released in 2006.
There is no "International Forum Design Award winner
," and the LG phone didn't win it
. There are a ton of winners
, and LG was one of them
. (Apple has "won" several of these as well.) IF awards (for design, materials, communication, concepts, etc.) are more branding tools (like "Made for Windows" or "As Seen on TV") than anything else. LG did not get the
design award, but it did get a
design award, along with dozens and dozens of other products. The 50
"Gold Award" winners, picked from the pool of "winners," will be announced March 15. So LG might not even get a "Gold Award," let alone "the" award (which, again, doesn't exist).
The fact that no "reporters" have bothered to look this up shows the sad state of journalism today.
