Clever Starfish wins WA Web Awards for both The Seventh Duchess & Perth Theatre Company

Last night was the WA state round of the Australian Web Awards – run in parallel with events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.

It was held at SpaceCubed in St Georges Terrace – and was a great chance to catch up with other web nerds in our industry.

After a focus on accessibility, we got into the business of the awards – kicking off with our first of two wins for The Seventh Duchess in the eCommerce category! This followed with another award in the non-profit category for Perth Theatre Company.

There were multiple awards in some of the categories and other winners included The Frontier Group, Humaan, JuiceBox Creative, Bam Creative, 303 Lowe, Red Meets Blue, Michael Bollig and Sumo.

For all the chatter, check out our Twitter or #AWA2013 or follow us on Facebook.

The national round of Australian Web Awards runs in two weeks – Sydney here we come!

Clever Starfish Team Nominated for five Australian Web Awards, take home three shiny trophies!

The Australian Web Awards, held at Luna Park in Melbourne and run by the Australian Web Industry Association, has brought great winnings to Clever Starfish this year!

We can now proudly add three more awards and five finalist certificates to our ‘cabinet’ next to the award won in 2009 for Sophie Kyron’s site, if we include the two taken home by Adam Trickett, one of our fabulous programmers.

Australian Web Awards 2012

The very first award on the agenda was for the “Personal” category – and this was taken out by Adam for his personal site. We are so impressed!

The second award was won for our own website in the Commercial category. It competed against websites from Freerange Future, Humaan, Digital Domination and BMC Solutions. You can find out a little more about this site on our project page.

Our third award was presented for Due Jolly in the Best HTML and CSS category – competing against websites created by Zeroseven, Sumo Group, Equilibrium and Get Started. We are particularly proud to have won this category because it validates (excuse the pun) the hard work we do to make sites built on a solid foundation.

Our fourth award/nomination was “Finalist” in the “Best Overall Mobile” for Adam Trickett – who was competing with websites from MatesRates Design, Sumo Group, Renrez Web Consultancy and Design City. The award was won by Design City for their own site. Great work guys!

Our final award/nomination was “Finalist” in the “Most Outstanding” category. The winner was the fabulous team at BAM Creative for the hard work they did on the FOODcents website. Nice work, Miles!

We would like to thank the Australian Web Industry Association for running events like this, where we are given the privilege of competing with companies across the nation and look forward to next year when we hope there will be more representation from all states across Australia.

Photos and video will be coming! Stay tuned…
