"Advanced" is apparently the category below "Expert" which is below "Professional"
I believe the idea here with the "best advanced full frame" terminology is speaking to the fact that the RP is about the cheapest, full-frame mirrorless camera available currently. The fact that it's full frame is what makes it an "advanced" camera, at least in this particular usage. At least this is how I see it. I see the best part of the award as coming from the price-point coupled with the fact that it's full frame...
Again, only my 2 cents.

Isn't the Sony A7-something significantly cheaper, by hundreds of dollars? For someone wanting to get into FF mirrorless, $800 seems a more reasonable budget even if it's not the most sophisticated camera around. Though it probably won a similar award back in history.

The elephant in the room being that first-time-full-frame enthusiast photographers are more likely to pick up something second hand like a used 6D.

Excellent wins by No 1 Canon and although on this award 'Best full frame camera advanced: Canon EOS RP' some may say that it isn't warranted if you compare it against some more advanced spec cameras like the Sony A7 MK 3 and Nikon Z's you need to take account of the strong and stronger EOS RF lenses that complement and strengthen the EOS R's and also being able to mount excellent EF FF & EFS glass to the EOS R bodies.

This is that participation award though isn't it? Where everyone (except maybe Pentax, sorry) wins some award.
Yes. It's an association of photography magazines. They hand out awards so that their advertisers will buy ads in the magazines to say they won an award. Each of the participating magazines will run a story about the awards, further promoting the association and the manufacturers. And, all the manufacturers put out press releases announcing they won a prize and further promoting the organization. All connected in a circle, each with one hand on the other's...well...you get the idea.

Nothing wrong with it, as long as you understand what is going on.

I'm surprised all the "rumors" sites on the web don't get together, form an organization and hand out their own awards.

Sorry, but the Sony A 7 is one of the worst cameras I ever had in hand.
The mirror hits the mirror-box hard, inducing vibrations, the menus are horrible, whether sealing non-existent, ergonomics a catastrophe...
$ 800 are too expensive for such a c..p!

You do realise this thread has been dormant for the last 3 years? A little like the tenor of your posts ...
Some have been asking the question for all of those years. We've wanted more resolution... and crickets. Nikon forced their hand. No largess from Canon, I assure you.
