Irish Web Awards 2008 – Initial Category list

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

The first thing to note when it comes to deciding categories and judging criteria for an Awards show is that there will never be a full consensus on them, even if you had eternal life. So we’ll try and get as close to “almost happy” as possible.

The Web Awards are designed to be as fair as possible and to allow the 15 year old website builder to be able to compete as well as the design agency. It’s her talent we want to reward, not her ability to pay to enter and attend. The Web Awards are also designed to highlight online areas that other awards shows have not catered for.

With these things in mind, here is draft version 0.4 of the Irish Web Awards categories. Feedback appreciated but they become the “official” ones very soon. [for sponsorship information, email contact (at) ]
