Over the next few months, we’ll be submitting some of our best work to be considered for TheFWA.com’s Site of the Day award. The FWA, or “Favourite Website Awards,” has been around since May 2000 and is the most trafficked web-based awards program in Internet history. Since November 2012 alone, TheFWA.com has received more than 170 million visits.
Submissions are assessed for creativity, design, content, personality, and originality by a panel of industry judges. If selected for Site of the Day, they also become eligible for Site of the Month, Site of the Year, and the annual People’s Choice Award. In addition, all entries go up for public voting – that’s where you come in! For one week, site visitors can vote with a simple “Yes” or “No” to determine whether a website is worthy of a feature on the FWA Public Shortlist. This is a user-generated award and is separate from the Site of the Day competition – all it takes is a quick FWA membership signup, a visit to the latest submissions page, and you’re ready to go. Check out our current entry, UTSanDiego.com, and check in regularly on Facebook and Twitter to find out when the next submission is up for vote!
