Founded in 1997 to help set a high standard for Internet marketing and development of the best websites on the World Wide Web, the Web Marketing Association's annual WebAward competition is now in its 12th year. The WebAwards is the premier annual website award competition that names the best websites while setting the standard of excellence for all website development. This year nominations were received from 2,400 sites from 45 countries in 96 industry categories.

The competition was judged by a team of independent Internet professionals representing a variety of website development disciplines. Judges included members of the media, advertising executives, site designers, creative directors, corporate marketing executives, content providers and webmasters.
