The Web Marketing Association has announced that the deadline for entering its 10th annual WebAward Competition (http://www.webawards2006.org) has been extended until June 15th to allow final entries to be submitted and existing entries to be edited if needed. The WebAwards are the Internet’s premier award competition that judges website development against an ever increasing Internet standard of excellence and against peer sites within an industry.
A complete list of past winners and the entry form for companies who wish to compete for 2006 honors can be found at http://www.webawards2006.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 96 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 competition’s highest honor, the 2006 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 year’s Best of Show winner was based IQ interactive (http://www.iqtv.com), for their outstanding work on "National Geographic – Inside The Mafia" at URL http://www.insidethemafia.com.
