The Pan Arab Web Awards Academy, together with the UAE Web Awards Committee, have recently announced the launch of the fourth edition of the annual UAE Web Awards. With hundreds of websites expected to vie for top honours, organisers aim to surpass the success achieved by the competition during its 2007 run.  Applicants can apply through the website


The unique contest honours the creative talents behind the development and design of UAE websites while promoting the protection of their intellectual property rights. The competition is open to all UAE-based organizations and independent website designers and developers. The best website will receive the Diamond Award, the highest honorary award in the competition. Each contest category will include three winners, with the champion receiving a golden cup and the second and third placers accepting silver and bronze cups, respectively.


The 2008 Web Awards will consist of more than 30 categories; winners in each category will be chosen by a prestigious panel of web design and development experts based on special criteria and international standards. The judges will reveal their choices during an official dinner ceremony to be held on November 29, 2008 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai, UAE. The triumphant contenders will represent the UAE in the broader Pan Arab Web Awards competition, which will include regional winners from Lebanon, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Palestine, and Yemen.


“The success of the previous editions of the UAE Awards has motivated us to expand the scope and goals of this important event. In this modern digital era where knowledge has emerged as a key agent for progress, websites have become primary sources of information and vital business tools. The distinctive and user-friendly design of websites helps project a positive corporate image. The Awards serves as a platform for participants to showcase their creativity and also allows us to promote the importance of respecting intellectual property rights,” said Pierre Moukarzel, President and Founder, Pan Arab Web Awards Academy.


“We aim to honour the country’s best website designers and developers through this event. We will be gathering the best and the brightest web designing companies, independent designers and website owners to recognize their creativity and commitment to the website craft. This year’s categories will include banking; financial services; e-commerce; education; fashion; private and public organizations; and hospitals, among others. We will witness the best websites in fields ranging from media and publicity; car rental; and sports, to entertainment, real estate and marine transport. The 2008 contest will definitely be another landmark event for website development in the UAE,” concluded Moukarzel.
