These sites may not have won the top accolades but they deserve a special mention.

With all competitions there are winners and losers but sometimes, the margins between a winning website and one that doesn't quite make the mark is very narrow. Every year, the stakes are raised higher as the web ups its game and here at The Good Web Guide, we like to recognise excellence and thus, this list of sites deserve a special mention. They were highly commended during the judging process and who knows, some of them might be next year's shortlist who then go on to become winners.
