Past nominees in the Best Practices category have included Facebook, Flickr, and Google (who was the first winner of this award). The Webbys define Best Practices as the following:
“Best Practices sites serve as an industry benchmark for the most current, innovative, and advanced practices in Web development. Sites demonstrating unparalleled excellence across The Academy's six criteria: content, structure & navigation, visual design, interactivity, functionality, and overall experience.”
Cookstr is the only content site to receive a nomination in the Food and
Beverage category, joining Red Bull Flugtag Flight Lab, Music in a bottle,
Hotel 626, and Hello Sour Sally.
Cookstr also won an Honorary Mention in the Lifestyle Category.
This recognition would not have been possible without the amazing work of The
Barbarian Group (design) and Pivotal Labs (software development).
