A complete list of past winners and the entry form for companies who wish to compete for 2005 honors can be found at http://www.2005webaward.org
Web sites are judged on design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, navigation and ease of use. Each WebAward entry is judged against other entries in its industry category and then against an overall standard of excellence. A Best of Industry WebAward, a handsome plaque with the image of the winning site embossed, will be given in each of the 90 industry categories, including financial services, medical, small business, travel, advertising, transportation, and government. New categories for this year include Healthcare Providers, Medical Equipment, Fashion and Technology.
The competitionÂs highest honor, the 2005 WebAward Best of Show, will be given to the one site that the judges believe represents the pinnacle of outstanding achievement in Web development. Last yearÂs Best of Show winner was Arc Worldwide (http://www.arcww.com) for their work on Behr Paint Interactive. (http://www.behr.com)
