The 5th annual CIO Web Business 50 Award honors 50 outstanding Web sites across business, government and non-profit platforms.

"The World Wide Web is a crowded marketplace, but winners of the CIO Web Business 50 Award are a step above other sites," said Abbie Lundberg, editor in chief, CIO magazine. "Winning sites have combined excellence in design and functionality to create a top notch experience for their consumers, business partners and other users."

Winning sites were judged on a number of criteria including design, ease of user navigation, special features and functionality, and business value, shown by a site's ability to survive and even thrive in a difficult business climate.

Among the other honorees of this year's CIO Web Business 50 Award were such companies as Cisco Systems, CNET Networks, Ernst & Young, Ford Motor Company, GE Capital, Google, Land's End, and UPS. iPrint was also chosen as a winner of the CIO Web Business 50/50 Award, which recognized the top 50 Internet and top 50 Intranet sites, in 1997 and 1999.
