The Golden Web Award is proud winner of the prestigious GOLDEN WEB AWARD provided by the International Association of Webmaster and Designers ( U.S.A.) for the year 2001-2002.

The Judges:
Golden Web Awards are provided through the International Association of Webmaster and Designers. The Judges consist of a V.V.C. (Voluntary Voting Committee). This voting committee was designed to be comprised of I.A.W.M.D. members who volunteer their time to visit and score, the websites submitted for the award.

Requirements to Win:
The websites submitted are judged and scored in three primary categories: Design, Content and Originality. Each category may receive a score of Between 1 to 10. Up to three V.V.C. members may score a particular website. The scores from each V.V.C. member are totaled (30 being a perfect score). These scores are than added together and averaged for a final score. Winning the award requires a total score of between 24 to 30.

Only the best sites are voted to receive the Golden Web Award. The criterion for winning remains a challenge  to even the best Webmaster, artists and designers. That being said, the primary benefit of the Golden Web Award is the recognition of your commitment to the pursuit of website excellence.
