A Record of Awards

These awards are but the latest in a string of achievement recognitions presented to 3 Media Web. It received awards for Outstanding Achievement in Employment, Education, and Manufacturing from IMA in 2016. It also received recognition for web design in Advertising Best in Class, and two B2B Best in Class awards that same year.

3 Media Web has been a consistent winner of IMA awards since 2015.

Marc Avila, partner, founder and team leader of 3 Media Web, was proud to share the awards with his staff. “We’re a team,” Avila said. “3 Media Web is all about customer service and satisfaction. These awards let us know we’re on the right track for our clients.”

Mr. Avila has been in the web development business since 1999. He founded 3 Media Web in 2001.

Avila’s partner, Lysa Miller, who serves as vice president of Sales and Marketing for the firm, also had praise for 3 Media Web’s team. “We are not the largest firm out there, but we’re a focused talented group,” Miller said. “We give each client 100 percent of our best and our full attention when developing their website. If the client isn’t satisfied, we haven’t done our jobs.”

Ms. Miller has been with 3 Media Web since April 2015.

The 3 Media Web team is obviously proud of its members. They are a global group that stretches from Massachusetts to Nebraska, from Japan to India, West Virginia to North Carolina.

It is this distributed flavor that makes 3 Media Web a success, according to Avila. “We look for the best talent, wherever it may be,” Avila said. “I want the best for our clients; to provide that, I have to have the best talent working on my team. That’s who 3 Media Web brings to the table when we design your website.”

Interactive Media Awards

Interactive Media Awards is a nonprofit organization created by the Interactive Media Council, Inc. (IMC). IMA consists of leading web designers, programmers, and developers. It includes advertisers and selected web-related professionals. The competition’s purpose is to elevate and promote the standards of excellence for web design on the internet.

With its IMA awards, the group offers winners encouragement in their marketing efforts and a boost in their exposure. IMC is the primary sponsor of the Awards and serves as the governing body. It establishes the system used for judging and selects the judges for the competition.

An IMA award is not easily won; the judging process is rigorous and competitive. For those who survive, the rewards are worth it.
