2007 Addy Award Winner

Southwest Florida Addy AwardBest Consumer Website WGCU Public Media

What do you say when you win an award? Personally I rarely win things. I remember I drew a picture for art class in middle school and it was selected to be the cover of the graduating class’s farewell ceremony pamphlet. It was a great moment.

But, that pales in comparison to what we’ve just found out. I am proud to announce that Atilus is the recipient of a 2007 Gold Addy Award for best consumer website for the WGCU Public Media website. To date, the WGCU website and further development has been one of the biggest, most challenging, and most rewarding web projects we’ve ever worked on.  We are particularly proud and happy to be awarded for this project as it continually evolves and our relationship and ties to WGCU and Florida Gulf Coast University continue to deepen.

On behalf of all of the designers, programmers, and everyone else that helped develop the ever-evolving WGCU site I would like to thank Kathleen Davey and Barbara Linstrom as well as everyone else at WGCU whose vision and direction helped lead this website into territories uncharted by conventional public media and made it into the success it has become today.  I would also like to thank Samantha Scott from Pushing the Envelope and Stephen Blancett (Vice President and President of our local AAF chapter) for encouraging our participation and entry into this year’s Addy Awards.

    It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

    Hi Steve,

    We won just a few weeks ago. I just checked out the AAF.org website and it looks like they only post (past) national winners. We won the local chapter division and will then go on to compete regionally and then (hopefully) nationally. Unfortunately, to add to the confusion, we also entered under our old company name Unique ID Web Design (too long I know!) anyway we’ll keep you posted with updates.

    Thanks for stopping by.
