True.  And this may be why I want to change the modus operandi.

You're right, this is where anyone would be fuddled.

Hmm.  It would have to be a mix of neg, print, and IP, to even the
playing field.  Perhaps you have just one roll, that travels from
colorist to colorist.  Call the competition "World Cup Color". 

But the problem with all this is it doesn't have the public relations
cachet of presenting awards on work done for air, where there are
additional hooks for products/agencies/facilities.  

So, assuming the ITS won't go along because your idea voids some
important PR for them, shall we do this ourselves, and present our own
award?  It would be a real trade award, completely in our grasp from
beginning to end...
