The City of Abbotsford has won an Award of Distinction from the international Communicator Awards for its newly designed website.

The Communicator Awards is sanctioned and judged by the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts, and recognizes excellence, effectiveness, and innovation across all areas of communication.

The Award of Distinction is given to those that exceed industry standards in quality and achievement. Submissions are not judged against one another but are instead judged purely on craft.

The City of Abbotsford launched its newly designed website, designed by Upanup Studios, on Dec. 9, 2020 and won a Gold award from the AVA Digital Awards in February 2021.

The website features an improved layout that works on all mobile devices and includes the latest translation software offering up to 99 different languages.

The website receives close to two million unique page views per year.

“It is a valuable resource for both residents and businesses and is the quickest way to find current information on city services and programs,” said a city spokesperson.

The Communicator Awards receives almost 5,000 entries from companies, agencies, and studios of all sizes, making it one of the largest award programs of its kind.
