Web Advanced has won a Gold W3 Award for the fully-redesigned Baldwin Hardware website. Web Advanced has now been honored with five awards for the Baldwin Hardware website, the others including a Davey Award, an IMA Best in Class, a Stevie Award, and a Webby Honoree.

The W3 Awards honors creative excellence on the web, and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award winning sites, videos and marketing programs. In its seventh year, the W3 Awards received over 3,000 entries from ad agencies, public relations firms, interactive agencies, in-house creative professionals, web designers, and graphic designers.

The W3 is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body consisting of top-tier professionals from a "who's who" of acclaimed media, interactive, advertising and marketing firms. IAVA members include executives from organizations such as Alloy, Brandweek, Coach, Disney, The Ellen Degeneres Show, Estee Lauder, Fry Hammond Barr, HBO,, MTV, Polo Ralph Lauren, Sotheby’s Institute of Art, Victoria’s Secret, Wired, and Yahoo!.

In determining winners, entries are judged based on a standard of excellence as determined by the IAVA, according to the category entered. To uphold a high standard of excellence, a category may have multiple winners, or may have no winners at all. Entries are scored on a ten point scale by the judges. Less than 10% of all entries are selected as Gold Winners. Other outstanding entries are honored as Silver Winners. Best in Show selections represent the highest mark of distinction and are also selected by the Academy based on scoring. The judges will award Best in Show honors to only the top 1% of all work entered.
