Web Marketing Association SmartBrief | May 02, 2016

The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best public interest and advocacy Websites in the world as part of their 20th annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at www.webaward.org. The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including advocacy, arts and nonprofit websites, based on the seven criteria of a successful website. The deadline for public interest websites to enter is May 31, 2016.

"Advocacy and nonprofit websites are very competitive when it comes to Web development and organizations can benefit from the independent evaluation of their online efforts," said William Rice, president of the Web Marketing Association. "Advocacy sites tend to be very good a pulling at the heart strings to sway visitors to their particular point of view. Strong writing and good use of images make many of these sites successful. Sites entered into the nonprofit category also benefit from a reduced entry fee which is our way of recognizing the budget constraints at many of these organizations."

Nonprofit and Advocacy Websites can be entered into consideration for the 2016 Best Advocacy Website WebAward at the WebAward website.
