DL Media earned the 2015 Web Marketing Association’s (WMA) Outstanding Website Award for their drugfreeva.org responsive website design, created for the offices of Gloucester County Emergency Management and Commonwealth Attorney in Gloucester, Va. The advocacy website went through a comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in each of the judging criteria.
WMA judges critique WebAward entries in a points-based scoring system, with a maximum score of 70 points. The seven 10-point criteria include design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copywriting and ease of use. Entries receiving a score of 60 or greater earn the Outstanding Website WebAward.
DL Media designed drugfreeva.org as a part of the Sink or Swim campaign to build a broad awareness to issues related to drug addiction and be an information resource for individuals and families impacted by drug use. The site features video interviews with recovering addicts, drug facts by category, resources for help with drug/alcohol addiction and blog content addressing issues teens and the adults in their lives face.
“I am committed to doing everything that we can to make all resources accessible for our citizens who are struggling with addiction. Particularly important in a semi-rural jurisdiction is the use of the internet to disseminate reliable information on how and where people can get help. I am grateful that our message that help is out there is going to be delivered in a professional and effective way,” says Gloucester County, Va., Commonwealth Attorney Holly Smith.
