We’ve all seen those web awards where glossy, shiny websites get to win, even if they’re inaccessible, hard to navigate, poorly written. So long as they look good, they’re winners. Kind of like Miss Universe, swimsuits, makeup, and all.
We wanted to create some awards that meant something to the industry, that were credible and relevant. We wanted some awards that focused on the web and didn’t relegate that to a category amongst broader design awards. And we wanted the awards to be judged by the best people we could find
So we created the ONYAs.
The ONYAs are brought to you by the team at Webstock. The web industry in New Zealand is world class. The ONYAs are awards that reflect that.
