PlanetMagpie Wins 'Best in Show' W3 Award for Website

The W3 Awards honor the year's best creative excellence in websites, video, social media, and mobile. Our website for Staples Construction took 'Best in Show' for 2017!

Staples Construction worked hard to become a successful construction company with a sterling reputation. They wanted a website that reflected that reputation, in order to tackle even bigger projects.

The new launched in early 2017 and quickly fulfilled that goal. Now, thanks to the W3 Awards, the company can tout it as award winning as well!

The W3 Awards recognize creative excellence on the Web. For 12 years now, they’ve given awards to select websites, videos, apps, and social campaigns from over 5,000 entries each year.

To win a W3 Award, an organization must have created an original, easy-to-use, and top-quality website, video, social content, or mobile app. Winners receive a Silver, Gold, or Best in Show Award and recognized on the W3 Awards website.
