The Sonic Site Awards 2002

The Sonic Site Awards (also known as ‘SSA’) is an annual online event that awards the best Sonic websites on the Internet – with the winners and nominees chosen by the public the entire time. The SSA debuted in 2001, as part of a programme that would lead The Sonic Stadium into the limelight.

The Sonic Site Awards in concept was not an original one – websites such as TSSZ had been doing annual awards before the SSA – but what made this event stand out from the crowd was the completely democratic process. This meant that nominations weren’t just handed to the public to vote for – the public actually chose who went into those polls beforehand. Because of this ingenuity and innovation in awards events, the SSA has fast become a memorable occasion, and the concept has undoubtedly become the inspiration for many other events on Sonic websites.
