Best Regional Websites

Each year the Web Marketing Association names the Best Regional web site as part of the annual WebAward Competition.  Since 1997, the WebAwards are recognized as the premier industry based Website Award program in the world.

Here is your chance to stand out from your competitors and win the recognition you deserve while receiving valuable independent feedback on your development efforts.

Best Regional websites are selected by judges who review the entered websites using the seven criteria below:

  • Design
  • Ease of use
  • Copywriting
  • Interactivity
  • Use of technology
  • Innovation
  • Content


As a participant, you will receive:

  • An independent evaluation of your Regional Website by independent expert judges
  • Valuable feedback to help Benchmark your efforts against other Regional industry websites.


If your site wins recognition with the Regional WebAward, you will also get:  

  • A beautiful statue or certificate of achievement to display proudly
  • Higher visibility for your company
  • A great marketing opportunity to promote your site to the media
  • Links to your site from the highly ranked WebAward site to help SEO
  • The admiration of peers, friends and co-workers – maybe even a raise!
  • A personal achievement for your resume

Each year the Web Marketing Association's WebAward Competition names the Best Regional web site.  Best websites are selected by judging the entered websites using seven criteria - design, ease of use, copywriting, interactivity, use of technology, innovation and content.  Websites not selected as best Regional website are also eligible for an Outstanding Website Award or a Standard of Excellence Award.
