What can you tell me about these book awards? Are they legit?

My friend won an award here
for his self-published book and he's really proud. I'm proud of him too, but I'm concerned about the fact that these are pay-to-play. On the other hand you have to submit entry fees for a lot of respectable things. Does that make these a scam or just a small award from a small business?
