And D&AD is a bit of an old luvvie-fest anyway. There is absolutely no chance that the Design Museum's site would fail to win, even if it were a complete pile of poo.

And all the D&AD people are print & product designers - no-one with any amount of Web experience. I'll put 50p on them evaluating it from a board.
