HotSpot! Web sites win kudos, cash

San Carlos Veterinary Hospital, San Diego, Calif., won honorable mention for excellent content.

Mandarin Veterinary Clinic of Jacksonville, Fla., won Honorable Mention for excellent artistic design.

The judges

All 60 entrants were ranked by DVM Newsmagazine Web Editor Lynne Brakeman on more than two dozen criteria covering graphic design, user-friendliness, content and interactive features.  The panel of judges (see their short bios below) used the same criteria to rank the top entrants.

DVM Newsmagazine extends its sincere thanks to our four web-savvy judges who volunteered  their time and expertise to help establish the gold standard for veterinary web site design.
