UGA Performing Arts Center wins Interactive Media Award for new website

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia Performing Arts Center has received the Interactive Media Award for outstanding achievement in website design.

IMA winners were selected by the Interactive Media Council, an international organization of leading web designers, developers and programmers, whose mission is to elevate the standards of excellence on the Internet.

In making the announcement, Aaron Warner of the IMA said, “The outstanding achievement award is an extremely challenging one to win. The Performing Arts Center’s website excelled in all areas of our judging criteria and represents a very high standard of planning, execution and overall professionalism.”
