Well, the first thing I did, when Ameecher mentioned it, is go straight to those who I knew make good shots. Some recent but the ones that I remember the strongest are from a long while ago, like 2-10-0
etc. Thats why I think that those screenies deserve it more than self nomination. The screenies that I nominate are stuck in my mind as being good and deserve that praise, even for being nominated. Hell, if mine were nominated Id be very happy - I wouldnt need to win.

Well, Id argue that potentially people can 'make' a screenshot. Although aesthetically pleasing, its not as impressive as just having a shot from a good game. Thats how Id like to see it reflected - not something that anyone can do with a bit of false engineering.

Well, surely that is arrogance. The way I see it, if I dont get nominated, my screenies aren't good enough to stick in peoples minds. Fair enough. Which leads to...

Fun? What? Thats why we have screen shots threads of our own. I post my screenies for everyone to enjoy. If I end up getting a commendation for one, thats great, but thats not why I post it. If you want to do something for fun, then post in your thread and let people enjoy looking at it.
Exclude people? I obviously don't exclude people form my fun as I have a screenshot thread that I use. The difference is that I post my screenshots for other people to enjoy and not purely to win competitions.
Hence why I am not in the slightest ashamed of myself.
