CatholicPhilly.com won the Faith-Based Standard of Excellence award Sept. 12 from the Web Marketing Association.
According to its website, since 1997 the Connecticut-based organization has developed industry benchmarks by awarding the best websites based on seven criteria, including design, interactivity, technology, content, innovation, copywriting and ease of use to target audience.
CatholicPhilly.com, the news website of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia, was the only Catholic organization to win an award in the contest this year. Last year the Archdiocese of Detroit won the award in the faith-based category, making the two websites the only two Catholic dioceses in the United States to be so honored.
In contest judging, CatholicPhilly.com scored higher-than-average marks in the areas of design, content and writing. The web site continues the mission of the former Catholic Standard and Times newspaper to present Catholic news and catechesis for Catholics especially in the Philadelphia Archdiocese in order to inform, inspire and form them in the faith.
