To a young organisation run by a small band of dedicated individuals dotted around Europe this accolade and the additional exposure is of huge value, both as a pat on the back for the designers and developers, and of course for the business. Again, many thanks for the highly valued support - it's organisations like yours that help make the internet a place where small dedicated groups without huge budgets can get known, get established, and do new things.”
“Wow x 100 000! It's incredible! We've always dreamed about it!”
"I'm very pleased about this! To be honest, I'm frustrated with some of the crap award sites out there - throwing awards out, without paying attention to the quality and importance of design to their own site. You have a quality presence and I will be happy to have your award on my front page!"

Thanks so much for all your support and keep up the wonderful work you guys do at FWA.”

Thank you for putting a smile on my face that nothing can wipe off now :)
Keep doing the great work because me, like a lot of designers, wouldn't have made this site without the great inspiration you bring to us everyday.”

“It was a personal goal of mine to get a FWA award. Some people at my work had won a couple but the projects I get to work on never get noticed because of music and sound for the most part are never noticed. So I wanted to set out and see what I could do based on my odd and strange style of music. AND I FINALLY DID IT!”
“My client and I are both absolutely thrilled. I have long been an admirer of FWA and its collection of sites, and I am honored to be a member of your directory.”
“I go to FWA every morning with my AM coffee (as most other designers across the world do I'm sure!) and I cannot say how honored I am to be featured on the site. I accept the award with a smile and the hopes to deliver more sites that are worthy of an FWA! Thanks much!”
