The College of the North Atlantic — Qatar (CNA-Q) recently won international recognition at the Interactive Media Awards (IMA) for the excellent design and development of its website. CNA-Q won an Outstanding Achievement Award, the second highest honour bestowed by IMA in the college category this year. Only 12 awards have been given to date in the college category to selected entrants from around the world. Prestigious companies such as Disney, Porsche and Starbucks were among others to receive the award. “We are pleased to receive this award from IMA,” said Dr Harald Jorch, President, CNA-Q. “When creating the new website, we strove to ensure our site was as user-friendly as possible while still delivering the necessary information. It is a key component in our new marketing strategy. This award is a testament to our success.” CNA-Q’s website earned 466 points out of a possible total of 500 points on five criteria: Design, content, feature functionality, usability and standards compliance. Websites with a score of between 460 and 479 receive the Outstanding Achievement Award, while websites with a score between 480 and 500 receive the Best in Class Award. IMA, which started three years ago, has judges who are leaders in web design, advertising and other industries, from companies like American Express, Microsoft and The New York Times. CNA-Q’s current website was launched in 2008, an initiative that was spearheaded by Mark English. The CNA-Q Marketing and Public Relations Department, managed by Monica Kennedy, oversees the website’s ongoing development.
