Lorem ipsum et cetera

As part of our fantastic Christmas party, the Webbie Award Ceremony 2013 took place on Friday 13th December. Adhering to a six year long tradition, the categories were a mixture of humorous and serious. Keeping the annual Directors’ Choice and Pride of Web Apps Award, all the rest were new, including the introduction of another yearly award going forward – The Alan Turing Award.

Awards were presented, along with their associated novelty prize, by fellow Webbies and the ceremony was hosted by none other than our Chief Executive, Craig Dean. By now I’m sure you’re just dying to know the winners, so I’ll get on with it…

It’s always great to celebrate the achievements of the Webbies we’re so proud of, not just the winners of these specific awards but everyone. All Webbies contribute towards making Web Applications UK such an incredible place to work. Into the New Year we’ll be recognising accomplishments in the weekly company update so we can feel the love all year round.

Until next time, Webbie Awards!
