How Good is your website?

The Australian Web Awards was held on Saturday night to celebrate the success of the best of the best: the most creative, the most innovative, the best designed and most functional web sites created and launched in the 2009/2010 financial year from all round Australia.

Gary Barber, the awards ‘judge and jury’ and owner of radharc said “This year marked an increased level of web standards and best practice compliance for the award entrants.

It was noted by several of the specialist web accessibility judges that the level of consideration for designing web sites for the wider audience of people with disabilities is now starting to be considered.

With the high calibre of web sites from the Eastern seaboard entering the competition this year there has been a remarkable increase in standards of the overall ease of use of the web sites entered.”

This has to be one of the best marketing strategies around for any business, that the website you paid for and nurtured so dearly this year was nominated and selected as a finalist or even a winner and then proliferated across the web! Was your business in this list?

With a 300% increase in the number of nominations from the East Coast in only its second year of being national, the social media word is spreading fast about the standards and achievements of some very cool websites around the country.

This year the Most Outstanding Award was won by; Gee Multimedia in Melbourne for The Coffee Company, www.coffeecompany.com.au

Contribution to the Industry Awardwas somewhat of a surprise to the winner, Russ Weakley, Melbourne, for his positive participation in various groups and the educational aspects he promotes.
