Web Standards Awards | February 10, 2004
As you’re probably aware, I post a lot of links to nice looking CSS sites. I’d been thinking about creating a CSS links site for some time, but never got round to it. Then in Sep 2003, a chap called Johan emailed me ask my opinion about a personal project he was working on.
The project was called the Web Standards Awards and the concept was simple. Each month, a group of judges would give awards to their favourite CSS sites. Most of the hard work had already been done. The design was set, the stylesheets were built and the most significant thing was the need for a “Backend”. I was looking forward to seeing this site launched, so spent the next few months emailing Johan to see how things were going. However Johan was snowed under at work and having difficulty finding the time to finish the project.
At the same time, Cameron from The Man In Blue started talking about the need for a web standards award site, so the three of us decided to join forces. Johan finished tweaking the design, Cameron supplied the copy and I set up MT. As we’ve all been busy, it’s taken a few months for the site to be ready. However as of this moment I’m pleased to say…
The Web Standards Awards are now open.
