AAWM Award Program

Award Program


American Association of Webmasters listed in Award Sites.

The AAWM Association, and more particularly its various Award Programs, were designed to supply formal recognition and acknowledge the hard work and dedication that each applicant has put into constructing their web sites 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.

As one of Worlds peak internet bodies, the Awards of The American Association Of Webmasters are amongst the most prestigious available - and hence, amongst some of the more difficult to win on the web. The AAWM has devised a rating system of Gold, Silver, and Bronze - with these different rankings enabling us the widest possible area in which to reward skill, effort and enthusiasm and assist in gaining credibility for your website.

The Gold Award itself represents the pinnacle of website design in the United States and to win this Award is truly an honor. Accordingly only a smaller proportion of our applicants will eventually secure this coveted prize as we only reward those webmasters who have excelled in all fields of our criteria.
