Webby Awards judging panel recognise Box UK for excellence in Mobile Web

April 19, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
London, UK - Box UK has been selected as an Official Honoree in the highly prestigious 15th Annual Webby Awards. The honour was awarded in the Mobile Services category for Box UK's work on UI Sketcher (http://www.uisketcher.com), a User Interface drawing app for the iPad designed to help User Interface Designers quickly generate ideas.

This achievement reinforces Box UK's international reputation as a progressive, dynamic organisation. The Webbys are recognised as the Internet's most respected symbol of success, and this year saw nearly 10,000 entries from all 50 US states, and 60 countries in total. The awards are judged by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS), an organisation whose members include Twitter co-founder Biz Stone and Internet co-creator Vint Cerf.

All entries are subject to a rigorous assessment process; for the Website and Mobile categories judges look at every aspect from visual design and content to functionality and interactivity. Only the very best entries are honoured by the panel, with less than 10% awarded the status of Official Honoree. The title adds to Box UK's multi award-winning status, as judges continue to recognise the company's combination of technical expertise, highly usable, real-world applications and customer-focused approach.

Benno Wasserstein, Managing Director at Box UK said "We're absolutely delighted to be selected as an Official Honoree by the Webby judges, and it's a great reflection of the hard work that has gone in to UI Sketcher. To be recognised alongside companies such as AKQA and Filemaker highlights Box UK's commitment to excellence, and this success has simply strengthened our dedication to finding inspired solutions for challenging problems."
