The Good Web Guide Awards 2019: Shortlist Announced
The eagerly anticipated themission Good Web Guide Awards are back with a bang for their tenth year. And to mark a decade curating outstanding contributions to the digital world from across the Internet, our stellar line-up of judges’ edit is in and it’s official: 2019’s shortlist is our “most exciting yet”.
Among this year’s star-studded arbiters are Hello! Magazine’s editor-in-chief, Rosie Nixon; fashion consultant and Vogue Trend Report presenter, Ginnie Chadwyck-Healey; head of Tech Women Today and champion of diversity in tech, Cecilia Harvey; and Digital Marmalade’s Tony Brennand. With their discerning collective eye for trends, the market, style, and innovation in tech, they were looking for entries packed with originality, flair, and emphasis on the user experience. The caliber of entries, across a huge breadth of sectors, was staggeringly high, making their job gratifyingly hard.
The Good Web Guide Awards were set up to help navigate the vast repository of content that exists on the Internet. They exist to ask the big questions: what separates a good website from a great one? What elevates an app from mildly interesting to indispensable? Is there room for yet more players on the blogosphere’s stage (answer: always). Above all, the Awards were created to celebrate talented people across a range of fields who dedicate their lives to achieving the exceptional in the digital sphere.
The Awards give a platform to established websites and start-up digital businesses alike, across sectors as broad-ranging as tech, home and garden, luxury, fashion, and food. Making 2019’s cut (among many others) are the disparate likes of Verve Rally, a supercar experience luxury service; The Modern Nursery, an award-winning, aspirational and social lifestyle store; ethical fashion label, Dilli Grey; Borough Kitchen, a site which caters to the urban at-home chef; Alex and Alexa, billed as the Net-A-Porter of children’s fashion; and leading literary and talent agency, Peter Fraser + Dunlop. The strength of the entries meant that competition was fierce; only the absolute cream made it through.
AND THE AWARD GOES TO
We are absolutely thrilled that Alex Payne, Sky Sports presenter, host of the popular podcast, House of Rugby, and founder of The Influence Room will present the Good Web Guide Awards at an evening reception in London on 20th November.
Alex said, ‘I’m delighted to be presenting this year’s Awards. The shortlist gives an interesting and varied snapshot of digital excellence and, in a really varied and competitive field, I’m looking forward to seeing who wins the top prize.’
