The RT website has grabbed one of the most prestigious awards in the online industry, outperforming 36 other competitors and winning “The Best in Class” nomination in the News Website category of the contest set by the Interactive Media Awards.
The Interactive Media Awards competition, held since 2006, recognizes the highest standards of excellence in website development and design and seeks to “elevate the standards of excellence” on the Internet.
The “Best in Class” nomination is “the highest honor” bestowed in the contest and was shared between RT.com and the CBS News website.
In the News section, the 37 rivals were judged on five different criteria, with a score of 0-100 in each category. The judges gave RT 100 for content and 99 for feature functionality, 95 for usability and 93 for both design and standards compliance – totaling 480 out of a possible 500 points.
- The committee which hands out the award said overall RT showed the best professionalism out of all the entrants.
“It represents the very best in planning, execution and overall professionalism. In order to win this award level, your site had to successfully pass through our comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in each of our judging criteria – an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year,” the committee said.
Previous winners in the News websites category include CBS, NBC, CBC and the Examiner. In the entertainment category past winners included Disney, Universal Studios and the Discovery Channel.[...]
