The Interactive Media Awards (IMA) is a competition that aims to increase the standards of excellence on the Internet. It is open to individuals and organisations involved in designing, developing, managing, supporting and promoting websites with nominations being accepted from around the world from web design firms, advertising agencies and corporate marketing departments, as well as individual web designers and graphic artists.
The competition’s judges evaluate websites based on five key criteria - design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance.
