Last month, we announced the winners of the 2005 WebAward competition.  Congratulations again to all of our winners this year. The image plaques and certificates for those winners were shipped out earlier this week.

Each year many winners order additional plaques and certificates personalized for clients, bosses, or team members. Personally, I have found the order form cumbersome and not easy to use.  That is why I am pleased to announce the new Web Marketing Association Recognition Center – a new shopping cart application that will make it easy to order your favorite award merchandise online. Now you can see a photo of each item, read about it and then order it. 

With the new Recognition Center, we have also expanded the offering for each award program. For example, in the past WebAward winners were only able to order image plaques, standard plaques and certificates. Now we have added trophies and apparel as well! So now you can order a shirt or cap with the WebAward logo and personalized with your site or award level – a great way to get a conversation started.

We have also provided the ability to order from past award programs – both the WebAwards and the IAC Awards.  So if you won a Best of Industry Award in 2004, you can order a shirt, cap or trophy that was not available to you in the past.

The new Recognition Center is located at Please check it out and help acknowledge your award winning efforts.
