I am used to writing feedback is welcome. Is that correct, or should I write feedback is welcomed? Why?

They are both correct, but the sense is a little different. In the first one 'welcome' is being used as an adjective. The second one is a passive construction--'feedback is welcomed (by us)'. Even though they mean basically the same thing, I like the first one better. The active voice is simpler and sounds stronger.
