Announcing …
Winners of the 2011 Website Competition

This year was even tougher than last year!

We had an incredible number of high-quality, professional websites submitted for the Build Your Very Own Freelance Website Competition.

But I’m happy to finally announce the winners …

When reviewing the websites, each judge was asked to put on their “client hat” and submit votes for their 6 top websites based on message, copy, usability and professional appearance.

Our grand-prize winner was unanimous!

This winner will receive $1,000 in cash to put towards their freelance business or anything else they’d like.

And with that, I’m proud to announce our grand prize winner …

Christina Gillick!

You can check out her website here:

Congratulations Christina!

And because there were so many great runner-ups, we decided to choose six additional winners instead of five.

So the next six finishers will receive $250 cash they can use to further invest in their business, or simply use to celebrate their success!

And the winners are …

Andrea Williams:

Crystle Pishon:

Ann Jordan Mills:

Mark Cunningham:

Deb Monfette:

Diana Dragoy:

Congratulations to all our winners!

And congratulations to everyone who entered! I was truly blown away by the number of high-quality, professional websites from this group, and every single one of the judges agreed that choosing only 7 was a very tough assignment.
