A showcase for attractive and accessible websites

There's this long-standing myth that accessible sites have to be dull and boring. Web developers and designers who have embraced web standards and accessibility know that it is just a myth, but in the rest of the web industry many people still think that accessible sites cannot look good.

To help dispel the myth, Mike Cherim has launched Accessites.org, a showcase for websites that prove that accessibility does not mean boring and basic. Each submitted site is judged by the team Mike has pulled together, and needs to meet certain criteria in the following categories to be listed:

  • Accessibility
  • Web standards
  • Stunning good looks
  • Attention to detail

A great initiative that I hope catches on. Got a site that you think should be showcased on Accessites.org? Submit it!
