Said Robert Ford, FWA General Manager, “One of the first websites to launch in 2004 and one that paved the way for an exciting year ahead, the Vodafone Future Vision site immediately grabbed a huge slice of everyone’s attention in January 2004 and for the months to follow.

A website that boasted new techniques and innovations, both through the website’s presentation and through the awe-inspiring gadgets that could mould our future.

Right from the opening screen, users knew they were in for a futuristic and progressive surfing experience with the welcoming voice introducing the site, followed by the innovative and original video-enhanced launch page.

The whole package was full of new levels of web design and development with pioneering features and techniques that would lay down a new style and trend for 2004 and the web in general.

The whole premise of the Vodafone Future Vision site, to give a glimpse of the future, was fully achieved through this groundbreaking website and a site that would be the pinnacle of 2004 and the worthy winner of both the FWA Site Of The Year and People’s Choice Award for 2004.”

Selected FWA judges’ comments can be found on the FWA site.
