Prize for mobile websites of our missions abroad

The International Web Marketing Association has decided to give the “MobileWebAward 2012” to the mobile websites of Germany’s missions abroad. The Federal Foreign Office’s mobile websites won in the category “Outstanding Mobile Website”. The Web Marketing Association awards these prizes for design and quality.

Since February 2012 around 230 missions have gone online with their own mobile websites in a total of 62 languages. The websites are optimized for iPhone 4, Android, BlackBerry 6.0, Windows Phone 7 and Opera Mobile 1.0.

The respected WebAward has been presented to websites for 15 years and is known to demand high standards. This year the Association has also introduced a MobileWebAward to take account of the rapid growth in mobile websites and to honour their design elements.

The international jury consists of experts in the fields of mobile development, design and marketing. The judges not only looked at the design of the pages optimized for mobiles: the competitors in the 96 categories were also being compared on content, interactivity and ease of use. The Federal Foreign Office’s mobile websites were in the category “Government”.

The winners of the Award were officially announced on 23 May 2012 on the website www.mobile-webaward.orG
