The best mobile websites and the best mobile apps of 2022 will be named by the Web Marketing Association
“Today, there are over 15 billion mobile devices in the world today, up from over a billion devices in the past year alone. If a business doesn’t use mobile effectively to reach its audience, it’s dead in the water,” said William Rice, president of the Web Marketing Association. “The purpose of the MobileWebAwards is both to recognize the individuals and organizations responsible for developing some of the most effective mobile websites and mobile applications on the Internet. Whether it’s a responsive website, a mobile-specific website, or a mobile app, our expert judges will select the best deals across 86 industries.
The MobileWebAwards are judged on seven criteria considered prerequisites for a successful mobile website or mobile application. They include creativity, impact, design, content, interactivity, ease of use and use of medium. Each mobile website or mobile app entry is judged against other entries of the same format in its industry category and then against an overall standard of excellence.
This year’s main prizes will include:
· A “Best of Industry” MobileWebAward will be awarded in each of 86 industry categories, including financial services, medical, small business, travel, advertising, transportation and government.
The competition’s highest honor, the MobileWebAward “Best of Show” 2022, will be awarded to the best mobile website and the best mobile application that the judges believe represent the pinnacle of outstanding achievement in web development.
· The Web Marketing Association will also reward the interactive agency with the most prizes in the competition with the WebAward “Top Interactive Agency”.
· Each organization that wins 5 or more MobileWebAwards will receive an Outstanding Mobile Interactive Developer trophy.
Last year’s top winners were:
EKR won Best Mobile Website for “Nature’s Sunshine”, which was also recognized as Best Mobile Consumer Goods Website.
GEICO won the Best of Show mobile app award for “GEICO Mobile”, which was also recognized as the best insurance mobile app.
TMP Worldwide has been named Top Interactive Agency for the MobileWebAwards 2021 competition.
Judging for the MobileWebAwards 2022 will take place in October and the winners are expected to be announced at the end of December. The judges will be comprised of a select group of internet professionals who have direct experience in designing and managing mobile websites – including members of the media, interactive creative directors, web designers, content providers and webmasters – with an in-depth understanding of the current state – on the cutting edge of website technology and development.
