Welcome to another edition of the Web Marketing Association's Interactive Briefing Newsletter. This is the last newsletter we will publish until September when we announce the winner of the 2010 WebAward Competition.


Speaking of the WebAWards, the 14th annual international WebAward competition original deadline has passed, but entries are still being accepted until June 15th. The WebAwards are the standards-defining competition that sets industry benchmarks based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site. It recognizes the individual and team achievements of Web professionals who create and maintain outstanding Web sites.

If you are already entered, please be sure your entry is complete and any additional entries are submitted prior to the June 15th final deadline.

If you have not yet entered, simply create a nominator account or log into an existing account from past years. This password protected area will allow you to enter multiple sites, edit the information up to when the judging begins and receive updates, results and feedback on your entries throughout the competition.

2010 WebAward Judges

I would like to take a moment to thank all of the dedicated individuals who have been selected to be WebAward Judges this year. These industry experts volunteer their time and expertise to help make this award program happen. It is because of leaders like this giving back to the online marketing community that recognition programs like the WebAwards can be a success.

Here is a list of some, but not all, of our judges for 2010.

Ordering Awards

If you have won a past WebAward or IAC Award and would like to order additional awards to highlight your achievement, please place your order before June 15th as the order center will be going on vacation until September as well. To order image plaques, trophies or certificates of achievement, please go to the WMA Recognition Center.
