Maryland.gov Wins Best In Class 2013 Interactive Media Award (Photo: Business Wire)

Maryland.gov, http://www.maryland.gov, the state’s official website, has received a 2013 Best in Class Interactive Media Award from the Interactive Media Council, Inc. (IMC). The Interactive Media Awards recognize excellence in web design and development and the Best in Class Award is the highest honor bestowed by the council. The honor recognizes that the project met and surpassed the basic standards of excellence that comprise the web’s most professional work.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our online efforts here in Maryland,” said Governor O’Malley. “This award affirms our commitment to citizens to make government more engaging, useful and available. The business of government is reaching its citizens, and I would like to extend my thanks to the Department of Information Technology and NIC for achieving this milestone.”

The Maryland.gov website was chosen as a Best in Class winner out of 137 entries submitted in the Government category. The judging consisted of various criteria including design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards compliance and content. In order to win this award level, the site had to meet strict guidelines in each area — an achievement only a fraction of sites in the Interactive Media Award competition earn each quarter. Out of a possible 500 points, the Maryland.gov website received an overall total of 482 points to secure the Best in Class distinction.

The award-winning site, released earlier this year, is a more user-friendly, engaging portal providing better access to government information and services. Designed for mobile-first content, the new site uses responsive design techniques to automatically scale content to the smartphone, tablet or desktop device being used. The site features a prominent intuitive search where results can be filtered to access more than 200 online services, agency publications, and maps. Geo-location features detect the user’s location to display the closest government offices, state parks, and motor vehicle (MVA) offices, complete with wait times. Crowd-sourced, local photography highlights activities across the State and showcases current events through a rotating graphical montage. Information is easy to locate through the main navigation bar with pop-up mega menus complete with secondary navigation, important programs, and the latest social media updates.
