For the 4th consecutive year, we are so very excited to announce that Forum One has been recognized in this year’s W3 Awards competition. 

The W3 Awards competition honors creative excellence on the web and recognizes the creative and marketing professionals behind award-winning sites, videos, and marketing programs. The W3 is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA), an assembly of leading professionals from various disciplines of the visual arts dedicated to embracing progress and the evolving nature of traditional and interactive media. 

We are proud to see that Forum One has been awarded in five categories for our work in website development and design.
