Um, I think we may need an official discussion on this.

I'd agree the announcement date is the best, but in most cases, the announcement wasn't made in the public and winners knew the result for the first time when the delivery service rang the doorbell... I think the shipping date is a little more traceable because the winners might have made a forum/blog post about it. As for Rewards album, things may get even more complicated. There are some pretty high-profile entries typified by Club Nintendo albums, and I think submitters have different policies on the release date (for instance, the current date of SMG2 soundtrack is the anticipated date when Nintendo will start shipping).
