The Web Marketing Association are pleased to announce the call for entries for its 2015 international MobileWebAward competition. The awards recognise the individual and team achievements of Web professionals all over the world who create and maintain outstanding mobile Websites and mobile applications. The deadline for entry in the 2015 MobileWebAwards is September 30, 2015.
The MobileWebAwards are judged on seven criteria seen as requirements for a success mobile website or mobile app. They include Creativity, Impact, Design, Content, Interactivity, Ease of use and Use of the 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.
