Anna Bance of Girl Meets Dress announces Biscuiteers.com as the coveted the missiontm GWG Website of the Year.

Every year, the missiontm GWG Awards are presented to websites that showcase excellence in their field. 2017 saw entries across a wide range of lifestyle interests and with a judging panel with a similarly broad range of skill sets, it was going to be a tough call to find an overall winner. On welcoming guests at the reception held at The Royal Institution of Great Britain, Arabella Dymoke said, "I liken our Awards to the Man Booker for websites. They are thoughtful and considered, rewarding really interesting sites, ones that we want to use ourselves or to tell others about."

Sam Crocker, Digital Directo of Bray Leino, part of the missiontm group, headline sponsor, said "My Mission colleagues Matt, Alan and I found our part in the judging thoroughly enjoyable but very difficult as there were so many high quality examples of websites doing exactly this within the shortlisted entries."

WEBSITE OF THE YEAR

The judging panel, including Sophie Conran, Rupa Ganatra, The Midult and Jeff Lynn from Seedrs, assessed entries on the quality of design, usability, content and product or service evident within each site put forward. After much deliberation, Biscuiteers was crowned Website of the Year 2017. Biscuiteers bake beautiful, hand iced biscuits, cakes and chocs. Each collection is presented in a gorgeous illustrated keep-sake tin which can be kept long after the treats are gone.

On presenting the award, Anna Bance commented, "I don't think a day goes by without a jolly biscuit character popping up on my Instagram! This year's well deservered winner gets my vote, for continuing to put a smile on so many people every day!"

Founder, Harriet Hastings, responded by saying, ‘Winning the missiontm GWG Awards is a real boost to the whole digital team at Biscuiteers. It is wonderful getting the endorsement of others and so very encouraging. I think that one of the main things that’s great about The Good Web Guide Awards judging is the peer recognition from fellow entrepreneurs of our hard work.’

Judge, Fiona Humberstone, The Brand Stylist, said "This website engages, enchants and delights at every level. A charming product, great layout and fabulous brand identity makes this a totally compelling online destination. Really inspiring."
