Default honorable mention?

What does honorable mention actually mean in a homebrew competition?

If your beer had been slightly better or the competition not so strong, it would have placed.

Maybe a really good beer, but not exactly right for a style?

They hate your beer, but want to put you on a pedestal like that chinese guy in american idol so that they can laugh at you behind your back.

Or it means kinda like it implies. It was a very good beer, but it was beaten out by a particulary high quality of beers in the same comp.
