company in EDP systems and some computer languages like Cobol, Fortran,
Assembler I started my career in the sales and marketing organization.

international job was a central planning function which was followed finally
by the worldwide responsibility for IS/IT systems of Corporate Procurement

in web design as a hobby mid of 1998. In December 1998 I've launched my
own awards program and improved it continuously. Of course I am not a professional

will I do with your application ?
visit your homepage and contact you with the result. You'll receive
a message even if your application was not successful. My response time
is usually approx. 4 weeks. The process of validation is as follows:
a very first visit after receiving your application
first rough check against the criteria "validation not possible"
if your site does not pass this criteria you'll receive a mail with a refusal
if your site passes that criteria I take the time to visit your site
last visit is just before writing you the mail with the final validation
you are successful and receive my award, and if you post my award
on your site, l´ll post a link to your site on my special site for
the award winners, the "Hall of Fame". You may understand that I can not
check regularly if the links to your website are working or searching the
new one. So it's up to you to inform me if your URL is changed. If I detect
a broken link I'll delete this broken link.
decisions are final and can not be discussed.
