The Printing Industries of America’s web2awards competition focuses on websites that are “print-centric.” The website’s focus must include sale/exchange of printed material and/or promote a printer’s capabilities on the Internet or an Intranet.
Although there are limited numbers of winners, every entry will receive criteria scoring (overall design, structure and navigation, content, technology, ease of use, and innovation), score comparisons to other entrants, placement in a booklet recognizing all entrants, and in pertinent cases, specific judges’ comments. Winners additionally receive a physical award statue, a digital version of the award that they can place on their company website, and each will be featured in a published case study.
Deadline for entry is July 31, 2009. More information is available at www.printing.org/web2awards.
