I haven't generally bothered applying for awards, largely because I can never be bothered to collect QSLs and sent them through the post etc etc.
But with the advent of eQSL and ARRL's Logbook of the World, a lot less paper is required!
I noticed recently that I'd qualified for eQSL's ePFX300 award, which you earn by working over 300 prefixes (G3, G4, 2E0, M3) etc. Prefix awards are quite fun as you don't necessarily have to work lots of DX to qualify.
I also applied for ARRL's DXCC award (CW) based entirely on LOTW records. Though I've plenty more than 100 countries on CW confirmed, I thought it would be fun to do it entirely based on electronic confirmations.
