4th annual pan arab web awards 2008 launched to honour best websites in arab world

Applications for Awards open until February 25, 2008


The Pan Arab Web Awards Committee has today (Monday, February 18, 2008) announced the launch of the 4th edition of the Pan Arab Web Awards – the annual awards dedicated to the best electronic websites in the Arab World - following three hugely successful previous editions. Nomination applications for all categories of the Award will be accepted until February 25, 2008.

The contest is the first event of its kind that aims to honour creative talents in developing and designing websites in the Arab region, in addition to promoting the protection of intellectual property rights. The Awards are open to organizations, individual site designers and developers, and website owners from Lebanon, UAE, Kuwait, Oman, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain, Saudia Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Palestine. Registration can be completed on www.panarabwebawards.org.

“The huge success of the previous editions has motivated us to repeat the event to an even broader audience this time,” said Pierre Moukarzel, Founder and Chairman of the Pan Arab Web Awards.

“In our present digital knowledge-based era, internet websites have become important sources of information, and with e-commerce rapidly gaining popularity, web characteristics such as design and functionality help to give a clear picture about the company that owns or operates the site. We aim through this award to give participants a chance to demonstrate their creativity and shed light on the importance of respecting intellectual property rights,” Moukarzel added.

The winner of the best overall website will win the Diamond Award - the highest honour in the contest, which was last year won by the web portal www.eyeofdubai.com.   Each of the 34 categories in the competition will include three winners, where the first winner from each category will be awarded a golden trophy, silver for second, and a bronze for third, respectively. A committee comprising and web design and development experts will select the winners based on advanced criteria.

The award categories include: banks, financial institutions, electronic trade, educational institutions, fashion, government and private institutions, municipalities, hospitals and the best electronic website in industry, international organizations, consulates, advertising and media, personal, sports, tourism, land and marine transport, airline companies, car rental and sales, entertainment, real estate, and more.

Winners from Arab countries will be honored at a special dinner ceremony on April 26, 2008 Al Falak Hall –Burj Al Arab, Dubai.
