The Sitefinity Website of the Quarter awards recognize outstanding websites for their excellence in user experience and their innovation in applying Sitefinity features and capabilities.
The Top 5 Sitefinity Website Awards operate on calendar quarters. Nominations for each quarter are accepted throughout the entire quarter period, and winners are announced in the next. For example, nominations for Q3’16 will be accepted from July 1 till September 30, 2016, and winners announced in Q4’16. Eligible to participate in the contest are only Sitefinity websites launched in the quarter for which nominations are accepted. Submissions will be accepted from authorized representatives with the organization owning the website and also from implementation companies (e.g. Sitefinity partners) provided that proper consent has been granted by the website owner.
