Welcome To Our Awards Section
These awards were created to celebrate those involved in the creation of the Internet, the web masters and web mistresses, the professionals and the amateurs, the hobbyists and the artists. Those who create the pages that make up the Internet and the world wide web. Not just the any of the billions of pages currently on-line, but those pages that are a step above the common crowd, that reach a higher level. To those Masters of the Net we salute you and offer our humble recognition in the form of our awards.

If you have any suggestions please contact us; we'd love to hear your feedback.
