This years winner has amazing 301 validation errors. Award goes to Valve and Plenware produced kauppalehti.fi.
Shared second place goes to TietoEnator, Avarko, QBrick produced ClassicLive. and Elisa Verkkokauppa by Mainostoimisto Ego (hey guys, what happen!?). Both sites have 113 validation errors. Second place goes to TietoEnator, Avarko, QBrick produced ClassicLive with 113 validation errors. YLE’s inhouse production yle.fi receives third place with 100 errors.
Elisa Verkkokauppa was fixed few hours after publishing this. Apparently backend coder had forgot to close <img> tags. It fully validates so I am taking away the second prize. (Yes, I used to work in EGO. Yes, I still work in Taivas Group.)
