December is a time when we like to look back at the year and reflect on the successes of the past twelve months and be thankful for all that we have.

The Web Marketing Association would like to thank the hundreds of online marketing and development professionals that contributed their time and expertise to help organize and judge both the WebAwards and the IAC Awards. This group of individuals are industry leaders that are giving back to the Internet in an effort to improve the level of website development and online advertising for everyone. We thank then for their ongoing commitment and recognize that we could not produce such outstanding award programs without them.

We also would like to thank our corporate sponsors, many of which have been with us for many many years. Our sponsors are hand picked because of their leadership position in the world of online marketing. These companies support our programs by providing high value exposure to help drive traffic to our award programs. This year our sponsors include: BGT Partners, PR Newswire, AllBusiness, ExactTarget, ad:tech conferences, Internet World UK, Search Engine Strategies, Burst Media, Webmaster Radio, and Website Magazine.

Finally we would like to thank our award show participants - you trust us to judge your websites and online advertising fairly and without favoritism, with expert judges, and create an outstanding marketing opportunity for you when you win. For 14 years we have worked hard to develop an online system that gives everyone an equal opportunity to get recognized for their best work.
