The Sutter Group Wins Two W3 Awards

The International Academy of the Visual Arts awarded The Sutter Group a 2007 W3 Awards Gold Winner in two categories, “Self Promotion” and “Games and Gaming”.

Receiving over 2,700 entries, The W3 Awards honors creative excellence on the web, and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award winning sites, videos and marketing programs. Simply put, the W3 is the first major web competition to be accessible to the biggest agencies, the smallest firms, and everyone in between. Small firms are as likely to win as Fortune 500 companies and international agencies.

“We were incredibly impressed by the quality and creativity of this year’s entries. W3 winners continue to raise the bar in Web development and design, push the limits of web advertising creative and pioneer the use of web video. We are thrilled to have reviewed such a diverse and respected pool of work” said Linda Day, the director of the IAVA. “On behalf of the entire Academy, we applaud our winners as they continue to advance Internet creativity and greatly contribute to the burgeoning online world.”

“To be included within the ranks of a veritable ‘Who’s Who’ in interactive media as part of this year’s nominees was a sweet reward for our team, but to win twice for our entry… well that’s just more icing on the cake,” quipped Karen Sutter, President and owner of The Sutter Group.
