Winner testimonials

“ have been the lucky winners of several awards over the years and it means an awful lot to our team that last year we won not only Best Entertainment Website but also the award for Best Overall website in Ireland 2012. Long may these awards continue.”

James Eggers –

“I entered the Irish Web Awards in 2012, and can honestly say that it was a really incredible experience. I’ve had tonnes of people asking about the award and they’ve been all been really impressed, it’s a very well known and prestigious award. The ceremony itself was great fun, and was attended by some really fantastic people whom I got the chance to meet and talk to.”

Simon Geraghty – DotDash

“Totally Dublin winning the Best Online Publication award at IWA 2012 really helped us raise the profile of DotDash as an upcoming agency in Dublin. Not only that but we’ve had several direct approaches for design work from clients purely on the back of that win. The event itself is a breath of fresh air.”

Golden Plec

Aidan from Golden Plec: “Winning the IWA 2011 award was huge for Goldenplec. To be honest we did not expect to even be nominated – in previous years we nominated ourselves, but in 2011 we appeared despite none of the team remembering to nominate!

Winning was a great vindication of nine years’ hard work. The following weeks led to an increase in interest in the site from PR and promotions companies offering us opportunities that in some cases had never previously been afforded to us. In short, people took us more seriously.”

Irish Defence Forces

Capt. Bernard Behan: “Having won the “Best Government and Council Website Award”, at the Realex Payments Web Awards 2011, it validated our efforts and leaves us in no doubt that the strategy we planned, prepared and implemented has worked. The award has given us the encouragement to add to and develop and we would recommend participation.”

The Comic Cast

Liam Geraghty: “We got mentioned in the Irish Times article about the awards, we saw more traffic to
the site but most of all the Award put the spotlight on us so a lot more people found out
about our site. Irish people who were interested in comic books but didn’t know there
was an Irish Comic Book podcast out there.”

Hairy Baby

Daragh Murphy: “We were over the moon when we won the Best eCommerce Award at the Irish Web Awards. For a business like ours that trades only online, we rely on customer satisfaction and peace of mind when shopping with us so it was like getting a blessing from the Pope himself when we won.

It’s a way of telling us that what we’re doing, we’re doing well and for our customers it tells them that we can be trusted.”

The Irish Times

Hugh Linehan: “Not only was it fantastic to get this recognition for our work from some of the smartest people in that community, it was also very important for me as Online Editor to be able to show so clearly to my journalistic colleagues in The Irish Times that the quality content we produce online is valued by so many people.””
