Kentico "Best Site of the Year" Contest: On-line "Battle" Started

From Tuesday, November 3rd to Monday, November 30th, you can vote for the best web sites completed in Kentico CMS in 12 categories.

Nomination of finalists
I would like to express thanks to all our partners and clients who entered their web projects for the contest. In the first year, we received 128 submissions and it wasn't easy to choose only three finalists in each category.

"Best Intranet" and "Best Extranet" categories are not included in the vote as we didn't receive enough entries.

Vote for the winners on-line
We in Kentico think that it´s fair to choose the winners in a public vote. This is why we prepared an on-line web gallery on our website:

Once you start the voting process, you will go through all twelve categories and cast your voice the web sites that you like the most.

The deadline of the public vote is on Monday, November 30th. After that, we will vote internally for the winners in the rest of special categories:

  • Most complete use of Kentico CMS features
  • Largest site
  • Best integration
  • Best migration from another CMS

Winners will be announced on December 5th on our web site and will be informed by email as well. There will be also one global winner - Kentico Site of the Year 2009 - which will be the site that we choose based on the voting and the special categories.

The finalists and winners will be entitled to use the "Kentico Site of the Year 2009 Winner/Finalist" logo. They will also receive a free Kentico CMS license, plaque, certificate, gifts and points towards the partner program.

We hope that you will help us to choose the Best Kentico Site of 2009. We look forward to your votes!
