We've been nominated for a Webby Award!

Recognised as the leading international award honouring excellence on the Internet - we've always quite fancied grabbing ourselves a Webby Award (plus it looks like it'd make an awesome paperweight) and today we've found out we're one step closer - having reached the final 5 in our category for the site we designed and built for Giraffe Restaurants.

“The only award show for Internet sites that matters.”

The Los Angeles Times

“The index of success in the global new media scene.”

The Guardian UK

“Celebrate sites that pave important paths to the internet's next phase.”

The Wall Street Journal

So what does this mean?

Well firstly, it must mean we're doing something right as the nominees have been whittled down from thousands of entries which comprise some of the best sites in the world (their words not mine!) Also, if we are lucky enough to beat off the stiff competition and grab first prize we get to attend the glitzy award ceremony held in New York - which would be absolutely awesome to be perfectly honest. We'll just have to cross our fingers for that one though!

What's next?

Well the restaurant category has two awards up for grabs - one for the site deemed to be the best by the judges panel, and another award for 'people's choice' which is basically voted for by you guys. Now I'm sure you can now guess what I'm going to say, and yes, you're right - we would really appreciate your vote!

Having gone through the voting procedure myself, I realise it's a bit of a ball ache as you need to sign up first - but if you do choose to persevere and give us some love, then you can get that little warm feeling inside, like when you save a puppy or eat soup.

Voting has now closed - thanks for all the support!
