The W³ statuette consists of three cubes serving as a representation of the very best in websites, web advertising, mobile sites/apps and web video.

From beautifully designed websites, to compelling video and innovative marketing, the W³ Awards winners' list is a smorgasbord of creative excellence on the web. Earth Touch News Network is delighted to have nabbed two silver accolades in these prestigious awards – one in the 'News' category and another for our Earth Touch Insider series.

"We were once again amazed with the high level of execution and creativity represented within this year's group of entrants," said Linda Day, the director of the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, the organisation responsible for choosing the winners. "Our winners continue to find innovative and forward-thinking ways to push the boundaries of creativity ... on behalf of the entire Academy, a huge congratulations to this year's winners for their dedication and commitment to excellence on the Web – job well done!"

Over 4,000 organisations housing some of the most creative and innovative web professionals on the planet were in the running for an award, so to be selected as a winner is a huge honour.

"We are excited to be recognised for the work we are doing alongside our passionate contributors and conservation partners around the world," said Earth Touch News Network Manager, Stephen Embleton.

"Providing our loyal readers, viewers and followers with the latest daily nature and wildlife news is something we are all proud to do and hope to continue inspiring them to make a difference. Thank you to W³ for the acknowledgement and motivation to continue the work and showing the world the wonders of nature."
