Best of the Web awards is an annual contest, organized each year at the Museums and the Web conference.[1] A committee of peers recognises the best museum work on the web. Sites are nominated by museum professionals from around the world.

Categories[edit]

Sites have been nominated in the following categories. To recognize the enormous evolution in the online space these categories have been updated for MW2013:

  • Audio / Visual / Podcast - Rich Media (audio/film/interactive)
  • Education
  • Exhibition - Digital Exhibition
  • Innovative / Experimental
  • Long-lived
  • Mobile
  • Museum Professional
  • Research / Online Collection - Research / Collections Online
  • Social Media

An overall winner is chosen among all nominated sites. In addition, there is a People's Choice Award (based on voting by the Museums and the Web community), and an award for a Small organization (based on staff number, annual budget, and/or project budget).

All nominations are made through the Museums and the Web site http://www.museumsandtheweb.com/mw2012/best and are also available online for others to review. Sites can be nominated in any one of the categories.

Note that the award categories may change from year-to-year, evolving along with the current trends of online presence.
