Webs, Pagemodo Win Interactive Media Awards

The Webs Site Builder and Pagemodo’s Website Earn “Outstanding Achievement” Accolades.

Silver Spring, MD, May 14, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Webs, the popular, do-it-yourself solution for website creation, has won Interactive Media Awards’ “Outstanding Achievement Award” for the Webs Site Builder. Not to be outdone, the newest member of the Webs family of products, Pagemodo, has won Interactive Media Awards’ “Outstanding Achievement Award” for its website, Pagemodo.com. According to Interactive Media Awards (IMA), the “Outstanding Achievement Award” is the second highest honor they bestow, and is an achievement that only a fraction of competitors attain each year.

When reviewing the Webs Site Builder in the category of Web Design/Development, IMA considered the following elements: design, usability, technical innovation, standards compliance, and content. They concluded that the Site Builder tool “surpassed the standards of excellence that comprise the web’s most professional work” in terms of design, development, and implementation.

Pagemodo’s website fell under IMA’s Social Networking category, and was judged on design, content, feature functionality, usability, and standards compliance. The organization felt that Pagemodo.com “excelled in all areas of our judging criteria and represents a very high standard of planning, execution and overall professionalism.”

“It’s an honor to have our work recognized by the IMA,” says Webs CEO Haroon Mokhtarzada. “We feel strongly that our tools are world-class examples of how the Internet can be used to enhance a company’s messaging, branding, and growth. But it’s nice to get external validation of this from an organization as prestigious as the IMA.”
