Judging Panel - Our Founder and Evaluators

As CEO and Founder of the World Wide Web Awards, I would like to extend a thank you from the entire group to everyone who has visited the WWW Award website - and invested their time in submitting applications for our various Awards.  


The honor has truly been ours to visit and evaluate the wonderful web sites that have been submitted to us since we began. We have had some spectacular sites come through the evaluation process and we have enjoyed visiting them tremendously. The WWW Association, and more particularly its various Award Programs, was designed to recognize and acknowledge the hard work and dedication that each applicant has put into constructing their websites using their own brand of style creativity, and content.  
It is to these sites that we owe our thanks as they are the primary reason that our Award Program is growing so rapidly and gathering so much critical acclaim in the world of the Internet.  I would also like to pass my personal thanks to our Evaluation Panel, and the people who have taken time out of their busy schedules to help in the process of judging and awarding the accolades to "The World's Finest Webmasters and Designers". We invite you to take the time and check out some of the incredible Award Winners
