Applications for the awards will be accepted till September 30, 2008.

The Pan Arab Web Awards Academy, along with the UAE Web Awards Committee, has launched the fourth annual UAE Web Awards.

The contest honors creative talents behind the development and design of UAE websites, while promoting the protection of their intellectual property rights. The competition is open to all UAE-based organizations and independent website designers and developers. Applicants can register through the website www.uaewebawards.org

The 2008 Web Awards will consist of more than 30 categories and the best website will receive the Diamond Award, the highest honorary award in the competition. Winners in each category will be chosen by a prestigious panel of web design and development experts based on special criteria and international standards.

The judges will reveal their choices during an official dinner ceremony to be held on November 29, 2008 at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai, UAE.

The winning contenders will represent the UAE in the broader Pan Arab Web Awards competition, which will include regional winners from Lebanon, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Jordan, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Palestine, and Yemen.

“This year’s categories will include banking; financial services; e-commerce; education; fashion; private and public organizations; and hospitals, among others. We will witness the best websites in fields ranging from media and publicity; car rental; and sports, to entertainment, real estate and marine transport. The 2008 contest will definitely be another landmark event for website development in the UAE,” said Pierre Moukarzel, president and founder, Pan Arab Web Awards Academy.
