Are we hot?

Is UCC, the first website in Ireland and one of the first ten websites in the world, the most influential? Are our friends in Revenue.ie the most influential or DoneDeal.ie, probably the most successful eCommerce site in Ireland. Media sites like Irish Times and RTÉ, new media kids on the block TheJournal and Broadsheet (hey!) moving online content forward or the champion of all things off topic for decades – Boards.ie

A panel of judges will now decide which of these sites was the most influential in Ireland and around the world.

Entries to the Web Awards are free whereas for other digital awards it can cost up to €150 to enter into a single category. We’ve saved people and businesses €150,000 in nomination fees with our awards this year. Accountants may point out we lost €150,000 in revenue.

The awards ceremony will be held in the RDS Concert Hall on October 15th and tickets are now on sale for €35. 2FM’s Rick O’Shea is the host for the evening. Tickets here

G’wan the revenue.
