London, UK (PRWEB) April 23, 2006
The Web Marketing Association is pleased to announce that Robert Phillips has been selected as a judge of the 10th annual international WebAward competition for Web site development. The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets industry benchmarks based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site. It recognizes the individual and team achievements of Web professionals who create and maintain outstanding Web sites.
"Unlike other awards, the WebAwards is not a beauty pageant where only the design and name recognition is important," said William Rice, president of the Web Marketing Association. "For the past decade, the WebAwards has used a quantitative judging formula based on seven criteria to evaluate, benchmark and set industry standards for Web site development. Robert Phillips will play a critical role in setting the standard for Internet excellence by applying his expertise to each site he adjudicates."
Robert Phillips comments, “I am excited to be joining the judging panel for these prestigious awards and it is my aim to bring to peoples attention some of the excellence and innovation I have seen over the past 12-months”.
