Our four awards are presented for excellence, each has its own criteria. Please click on the award graphic to read the criteria and apply for the award. Only one application is required to apply for all of these awards; each application is automatically considered for all of them. Also, there is NO guestbook requirement because there is no guestbook! ALL applications will be considered within one week, but only winners will be notified. The Website Designer will review all of the applications and visit each site, and if all of the listed criteria for an award(s) are met or exceeded, the site will be granted that award(s). By the way, for checking technical merit, we use GlobalScape NetMechanic to help examine websites. And if a website does not comply with the criteria for our awards, no matter how many awards it already has of whatever rating, it will NOT win our awards. So, we heartily suggest that applicants read and understand the criteria for each award before applying.

Special Notice: No applications will be considered coming from anyone under the age of 18 years old. KISS Websites awards programs comply in all respects with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

Please note: Several winners each year have had their awards revoked because they did not display the awards. If you do not intend to display the awards, do not apply. Also, links to sites which are inoperative and have not been updated will be removed.

The idea behind KISS Websites is to make websites that are appealing to the eye and ear, with a minimum of extra activity.

Many thanks to Noble Al Varelas, U.S.M.C., Decorated Vietnam Combat Veteran, webmaster of Masons in the Military Web Ring and many other patriotic sites, for the outstanding graphic used in this award.
