CSS World Awards
At the CSS showcase site CSS Mania, a contest is being held to select the best sites submitted during the last year (May 2005 to May 2006). Awards will be given in ten different categories.:
- Site of the Year
- Web Design (Companies and Portfolios)
- Web Tools
As opposed to many other similar contests, the winners will not be decided by public voting. Instead five judges will vote for their favourites among the nominated sites.
As it happens, I am one of those judges. The others are Andy Budd, Cameron Moll, Molly E. Holzschlag, and Sergio Villareal. And no, sites created by any of the judges will not be included in the contest.
I will place a lot of emphasis on code quality and accessibility when I pick my favourites in each category. Appearance is obviously also important, but I’m not going to vote for a site that only looks good on the surface.
If you’re not a judge you can’t vote, but you can browse the CSS World Awards categories to find out which sites are nominated. Anyone here involved in the creation of a nominated site?
