Are you going to be looking for case studies or do you already have some 
lined up? 
 
If the former then I'm sure I can speak to some people here and get 
something written up for www.pier.co.uk [1]. 

I'm supposed to be writing an evolt article about it, but time is getting
the better of me. I could fold the two of them together as the slant for
evolt was going to be developing with standards anyway.

I tend to view awards with a certain cynicism, in the main they appear to 
just be for the benefit of the people giving/receiving them. I guess whether 
these in particular can help 'make the case' as it were would depend on the 
visibility they achieve. 
 
Right now the only place I've seen them mentioned are here, evolt and web-l, 
which would lend credence to the fact that they're only preaching to the 
converted. 
 
But I am a self-confessed cycnical sod.

[1] Okay, so it looks a little 'functional' at the moment, but that was due 
to the available budget and we thought it better to spend that on getting 
them to a standards based platform first. The previous incarnation was a 
mess of frames, tag soup and vary large images. 
 
The budget has just been approved to to work on finishing the UI and giving 
it more of a visual polish. Time wise that looks like it's going to be 
finished around April time.
