Less than One Month Until WebAward Deadline

Winning accolades in the 2009 WebAwards – the Internet’s premier award recognition program, is a great way to stand out from others in your industry. But you can’t compete if you don’t enter!

The 13th Annual WebAward competition deadline for entry is May 29th, less than a month away. Entering is easy. Simply create a nominator account or log into an existing account from past years. Avoid a late fee by completing your Web sites entries before the deadline.

All participants will receive a updated copy of the Internet Standards Assessment Report personalized to include your website’s judges scores for each of the seven criteria of an effective Web site compared to your industry and the overall web development standard. No other award program give provides you this level of comprehensive feedback for your Web development efforts.

This year The Web Marketing Association is adding several industries to the competition based on participant feedback. They are Environmental, Gay/Lesbian, Mobile, Science and Social Networks. To make room for these new categories Auction, Brokerage, Computer Retailer, Institutional Services and ISP categories have been eliminated.

Please help us make the WebAwards a success and share this posting or email to the person responsible for marketing or website promotion in your organization and ask them to learn more about these awards. We are a volunteer driven organization and need your help at spreading the news about the WebAwards.
