Phipps Site Wins IMA Best in Class for Nonprofit Web Design

March 12, 2009

The Interactive Media Awards has recognized Elliance® for its design of the Phipps Conservancy website,

Elliance’s experience with non profit web design enabled them to structure the architecture and design of the site to balance the core offer—a visit to a world-class conservancy—and an emerging role for Phipps as a thought leader around sustainable gardening and living.

The Best in Class award is the highest honor bestowed by the Interactive Media Awards (IMA). It represents the very best in planning, execution and overall professionalism. In order to win this award level, a site must successfully pass through a comprehensive judging process, achieving very high marks in each of the judging criteria - an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year.

This is the fourth award Elliance has received from the IMA. View the Phipps Conservatory Award Certificate.

The IMA was created by the Interactive Media Council, Inc. (IMC) a nonprofit organization of leading Web designers, developers, programmers, advertisers and other Web-related professionals. The competition is designed to elevate the standards of excellence on the Internet. IMC serves as the primary sponsor and governing body of the IMA, establishes the judging system and provides the judges for the competition. For more information about the awards, visit
