    designing award pages

    Hi! I wanted to make a page dedicated to the awards my site has won. Does anyone know of a good way to organize the awards so it doesn't look like a whole bunch of mumble jumble? Or have you seen any sites that have a good way of doing it??
    Thanks!!

    Include your comments, who submitted you for the award, the site's comments, how important it is to you, if you're proud of it, etc.

    www.vemex.net used to to a great section but they are redesigning, I believe... You could check though.

    I'd avoid just clumping a bunch of clip-art together - you see that a lot and it just doesn't look good. If you want the awards to seem important then you have to present them as being important. I wouldn't worry about going all out, I think a nice simple table structure would suffice - run the award images down one column, with a description of what the award was for (and who it was from) in a second column running parallel. Include the date you received it and a link back to the site that gave it to you.

    I can't really think of any good examples of sites with nice award pages off the top of my head, but if I come across one I'll let you know.

    Here's how I display awards I've won:

    Maybe that will help

    Here's what I did: http://www.sports-central.org/other/extras/awards

    I just listed the awards and if you want to view the award image, click on the link. However, I think it would be worth it to add the date you won and possible comments from the award-giver.
