Like all great masterpieces, the art of web design is often awarded the opportunity to be reflected upon and recognized by industry leaders. As you search for a web design company that suits your needs, you may find that some boast pins and badges on their page that reflect their success. If you’re wondering what exactly your web design company has accomplished, here’s a sneak peek into the world of web design awards:
This panel of judges seek to “recognize the talent beyond the code” by awarding an annual prize to a web developer who demonstrates great skill in creating an inclusive, integrated web experience. According to their site, they focus on the talents it takes to balance beautiful design with functional coding.
This prestigious award honors freelance designers who push the envelope using CSS coding practices. Winners of this award must pass through a series of awards, including Website of the Day and Website of the Month, before being entered into the final judging.
The Webby Awards are perhaps the best known presenter of web design awards. Their goal is to honor the talent and expertise behind every great webpage. They offer 7 categories of awards, including Websites, Film & Video, Advertising, Media & PR, Social, Mobile Sites & Apps, Games, and Podcasts & Digital Audio. Each of these Categories is further split into honors- The Webby Award and the People’s Voice Award. If your website designer has received a Webby, you are working with an industry leader in design and implementation of beautiful web content.
