BNET Wins an Eppy Award!

Last Updated Jun 4, 2007 7:59 PM EDT

It's been just four months since we relaunched BNET, but our new website is already turning heads. Indeed, we recently received a big thumbs-up from others in the media biz -- in the form of an Eppy Award!

BNET won an Eppy for best design of a media-affiliated website with fewer than 1 million unique monthly visitors. We were also a finalist for best business site in the same category. Co-sponsored by Editor & Publisher and MediaWeek magazines, the Eppy Awards recognize the best websites in the media industry.

Everyone on Team BNET was thrilled by the news, but our superstar designers, Marc Mendell and Alexis Gallisa, deserve a special shout-out for all the work they did to make BNET so gorgeous. We've appreciated their talents all along, so it's great to see that the rest of the world has noticed as well.

Thanks also to all of you -- our readers -- for the helpful feeback and unbridled enthusiasm you've shared with us since our relaunch. Winning an Eppy is nice, but truth is... you're what really makes it all so worthwhile.
