Holistic Network Wins Awards

June 3, 2003 - Portsmouth, NH

The Holistic Network recently won the Omni Intermedia Award and also the Golden Web Award. The Holistic Network is one of four Web Sites that offer alternative health professionals a geographic listing based on their specialty. Students and/or patients are able to search for a practitioner or professional in their local area. An up-to-date event listing is also part of the overall functionality along with the automatic email notification of the addition of an event or professional in the local area. The Holistic Network and the other three related sites (the Yoga Network, the Buddhist Network and the TaiChi Network) were launched last August and currently have thousands of professional listings throughout the United States and internationally. The network of sites were designed and developed by CrystalVision Web Site Design & Internet Services based in Portsmouth.

The Omni Intermedia Awards recognizes outstanding production, design and content in the converging fields of television, film, video, internet, interactive media and 3D animation. The awards committee honored this entry for capturing the quality and content that achieved their highest standards of excellence. The Omni Awards brings together a wide variety of talented professionals working for highly respected companies. Each of the areas of this competition was evaluated by a board of advisors in their respective areas of expertise. Jim Owens, Senior Administrator of the Omni Awards said, "This award recognizes the converging fields of media production and rewards those companies who can capture the imagination and effectively communicate their message."

The Holistic Network was also submitted to the International Association of Web Masters and Designers (I.A.W.M.D.) where it was awarded the 2003-2004 Golden Web Award. The International Association of Webmasters and Designers, an organization of web-based professionals, boasts an impressive list of sponsors and affiliates including GE, Microsoft, Hertz, K-Mart, Amoco, TTI, Alamo and American Greeting. According to an I.A.W.M.D representative, "The Web Sites submitted are judged and scored in three primary categories: Design, Content and Originality. The criterion for winning remains a challenge to even to the best Webmasters, artists and designers."
