AAWM Graphic Artist Of The Year 2002
Dear AAWM and World Wide Web Awards Committee,
It’s been a year now since I won the Graphic Artist of the Year award, from The American Association Of Webmasters. I would like to thank you again.  I was so honored and surprised when I heard the news that I won. Especially knowing that the award didn’t even exist at the time, but the fact you decided on me after judging thousands of web sites was rewarding enough! The recognition has been really nice and your dedication page has definitely increased more traffic to Webthrower.com.  Carson-Dellosa, a large publishing company that I have designed many web sites for announced my winning to the entire company at an employee dinner and held up my plaque for over 200 employees to see. Everyone was very proud of their site for winning a Gold award from you but to then hear their designer won Graphic Artist of the Year (From AAWM) on top of that was even more rewarding. 
I believe winning this award also gives people a sense of security and trust when it comes to them letting me handle their web site and graphic needs. Thank you again to Donna Snyder CEO & The Awards Committee's of The World Wide Web Awards & The American Association Of Webmasters.

RE: Webmaster/Site Of The Year (From Australia)
In an industry dominated by thousands of individual companies and programmers, the need to "stand out from the pack" has never been more important if a Design Firm is to survive in such a competitive environment. In our quest to help potential clients decide whether Raptor Communications was worthy of consideration for their various design projects we knew we had to have that certain special something that would communicate this message. The American Association of Webmasters and The World Wide Web Awards was the answer.

They say that "payment is praise enough" in this industry, but one thing speaks louder than money and that is praise from your PEERS. As a peak industry body, the American Association of Webmasters and The World Wide Web Awards are globally respected organizations, and their Award Programs in particular are second to none. Therefore we knew to be taken seriously we would have to regularly submit our projects for critique and review by their panel and compete on our merits for the various Bronze, Silver and Gold Awards they bestow. In fact, few clients walk into our Offices and fail to comment on the rows of high quality Award Plaques we have proudly mounted in the Foyer areas and the "wow factor" they represent and credibility they bring us is in a visual sense is amazing.
After winning several Awards of the course of 2002-2003 we were notified by the Judging Panel that our overall designs and approach to the concept of web authoring was at a level where we would be amongst the finalists for the coveted Web Design Company of the Year Award. The rest is history. In fact these days it seems we are so busy, that we do not even have the luxury of updating our own online tools, such was the demand for our services that this Award created.
After winning the Award, and the resulting publicity it generated in our regional area, business multiplied 4 fold for our small consultancy to the extent where we now have 7 people on the Team, with one of them doing nothing but actually analyzing requests for Service, preparing Quotations to deal with them, and then scheduling design elements across the board.
As Managing Partner I cannot recommend highly enough the need for small design consultancies to look towards large organizations like the American Association of Webmasters and the World Wide Web Awards, for not only their much appreciated Award Programs, but also for their products and services (from templates to free scripting), and ALL placed on the site to help the Designer reach their end goal in a fast efficient and logical manner. We remain indebted to Chief Executive Officer Donna Snyder for her outstanding advice and ongoing contribution to our business and leads through their website www.aawebmasters.com  have already led to Raptor Communications now creating websites for companies on every continent in the world.
We were again in the running for the Award this year, and will continue to support the American Association Of Webmasters , World Wide Web Awards and apply online for their Awards and 5 people now currently owe their livelihood to business generated from their website, that we would otherwise have not received had we been given the honor afforded us as Web Design Company of The Year.

Gold Award Winner 2004 - World Wide Web Awards & The American Association Of Webmasters
Thank you for offering the service that you do. After “winning” your gold award I received a bonus from the Race Team and a secure contract for this race season. It was a way for me to let the Gotham City race team know that they had a good website in the eyes of other people in the industry. There will also be a press release out soon and I will be sure to send you a copy of it for it will mention your organization.

Dear Ms Snyder

It is with the utmost appreciation and humility that we gratefully accept the Associations Award for 2004 Web Site of the Year. Our partnership was born out of a passion for what we believe in. Our dreams and ideas would never have materialized if not for the sheer genius of Glenn and Raptor. To actually translate those ideas into reality has been a massive task and imposed heavily on everyone's personal and professional lives. To now have this recognition from such a world renowned association is without doubt the crowning glory of our year. With only a very small budget and some very big ideas it was Glenn and his staff that gave us unwavering support and commitment to allow this project to come to fruition. We still believe that we are only half way toward our goal of making this site and concept a truly universal web tool. Our marketing plans have always included taking our site and concept to the United States and this recognition will cause this to happen sooner rather than later. To this end plans are already being made and it would be marvelous if when we do visit we were able to meet with you personally to express our thanks.
We look forward to the official release of the announcement as there are many other people who deserve to share in this award, and once again, sincerely thank you from everyone at Career Central.

Yours Truly

Dear AAWM Awards Committee,
Thank you so much, we are all very proud to win and be part of AAWM. (as you would have seen by our site )
The AAWM site is of such value to us now that we are members, not only for the links but also for the help, tips and also the products, which are defiantly using. Your flash templates section is amazing and has offered a very real value to our business, reducing development time and turn over.
Currently we are producing 3-4 websites a week! (I believe this to be due to the awards won from you and also listing on your site) as before we where only turning over 1-2 a week. (Talk about massive growth in the last 2 months!)
So from all of us here at dataNdesigns, thank you so much
Stuart McGavin
