Oscar of the Web?

P: n/a


I imagine that by now there is at least one Oscar-like award for
webpages. What are the awards that recognize excellence in
webpage/website design?

Thanks,

bill

Theres the 'Webby Awards' (http://www.webbyawards.com). You have to decide
for yourself it's worth the entry fee.

Loads more if you google for 'web awards'. If you don't find one you like,
you can always invent your own!

Regards,

Pete.

There are many around but none of them are actually worth anything
(partly because there are so many). Most of them select stuff by
deezyners that is totally inappropriate for the WWW.

Perhaps the W3C should do one...

Haven't noticed one for something like 5 years now...

Good riddance.

Awarding another website can get you free backlinks.

That recent? I thought they outlived their usefulness in about '95,
and certainly they were better known as "warning labels" by '96.

That's too bad... I was just hoping to find some examples of good
homepage design...

There are BAFTAs for interactive things - http://www.bafta.org/interactive/.
The BAFTAs being the awards from the British Academy of Film and Television
Arts, ie British Oscars as opposed to US ones.

Awarded by people whose business is film and television, and who
are deeply clueless about the Web. A warning label in spades!

I still think their chosen websites for the last awards are quite good.
There's definately design tips to be learnt there.

Also notice in the BAFTA page footer - "Powered by Macromedia"
I imagine that, like most other award givers, they think anything made
with Flash is fabulous web design. More proof of their cluelessness.

Their choices in the Online Factual category, though they aren't Flash
sites, surely don't win any awards for good _web_ design in my book.
