    Submission software belongs in the last century and is no longer in the toolbox of professional SEOs.

    As far as site awards are concerned I have never met a professional designer who uses them because 90% of users will see them for what they are - cheesy! If you really want them just make up your own.

    A better alternative is to get recommendations from institutions/organizations that people instantly recognize and trust. Not only will that give you credibility but it will also give you a good inbound link.

    In addition to this, many of the 'organizations' that give out these awards do so primarily to get a link to their website from your home page.  If someone offers you an award, check the source code they send you to post the 'award' on your site & you'll see what I mean.
