West Simsbury, CT (PRWEB) October 6, 2006
http://www.webaward.org -- The Web Marketing Association is pleased to announce the Best of the Toy and Hobby Industry Web Site Winners for the 10th annual international WebAward Competition, the Internet’s premier website award competition.
“Recent WebAwards competitions have shown that toy and hobby websites boast well in the use of technology but have continued to score below average in their interactivity,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “WebAward entrants gain unique and quantitative feedback from the judges that will continue to help them improve their websites.”
The toy and hobby industry represents a significant category in the WebAward competition. Each entry is judged on the same seven criteria:
- Copy writing
- Ease of use
The WebAward Competition’s goal is to provide a forum to recognize the people and organizations responsible for developing the most effective toy and hobby websites on the Net today.
This year’s best toy and hobby website, along with past WebAward winners, is:
