The winners of the UAE Web Awards 2006 were announced on Saturday in Dubai at a ceremony hosted by the UAE Web Awards Committee and Business Software Alliance (BSA). Locally-based web design specialist Cactimedia bagged the event’s Web Company of the Year prize and was responsible for the site designs of a further 13 winners, while bayt.com won the prestigious Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Award for ‘Best Website in the UAE’. “The title of Web Company of the Year recognises Cactimedia’s fresh web-design approach that combines high-end design with cutting-edge technology,” said Cactimedia’s CEO, Mazen Ilyas. “Cactimedia is one of the few companies to provide a complete solution that addresses quality in each critical area of an organisation’s web presence, including search engine optimization, application development and technology integration.” In all awards spanning 23 categories were announced, with gold, silver and bronze trophies given away as prizes to three winners from most categories (ranging from E-Commerce to Fashion & Art and Governmental Organisations). The winners were chosen by a jury panel comprising experts in the field of web design and will now go on to compete against the winners of associated web awards from other Arab countries at next March’s Pan Arab Web Awards 2007 competition. This second edition of the UAE’s now-annual web awards was staged in association with Microsoft, Business Software Alliance, and the Lebanese Canadian Bank. In April this year, in conjunction with its website design and development clients, Cactimedia won 12 accolades at the Pan Arab Web Awards 2006 in Amman, Jordan. The firm recently announced it will expand its operations to Brazil by January next year. The Dubai-based agency already has two international offices in Belgrade, Serbia and Hyderabad, India.
