There are millions of sites on the Web and plenty of designers as well. How can you help your design talents stand out from the crowd?

Well the Webby Awards, one of the few truly recognizable and sought-after web design awards, recognizes outstanding web sites in over 60 categories. Their final deadline for submission for the 9th Annual Webby Awards is December 17, 2004. Also. for the first time this year, sites that don't make the cut for Webby Nominee or Webby Winner are eligible to receive special recognition from the Academy as Webby Worthy.

Did you design a website within this past year that you feel is worth the $95 - $195 entry fee? If not, then why not? Linda Goin asks herself that same question, as she looks at some of the past Webby Award winners and talks about what makes a Webby Winner, or any other web-design winner for that matter.
