The New Vision website has been voted the best website of 2012 in Uganda.
In the award by PC Tech, a leading technology magazine in East and West Africa, New Vision took the overall spot in offering local news content and a colourful design.
Published monthly, PC Tech features personal and enterprise technology, reviews, interviews and research on ICTs in Africa.
"The New Vision tried to overhaul a site they had for over 10 years mid this year. They quietly unveiled a more improved version and have been further improving it since," the magazine reads.
Other top websites in Uganda include State House, Bell Larger, Uganda Goes online (UGO) and Big Eye, an entertainment website.
The State House website was particularly credited for being up-to-date.
"The Government of Uganda is not known for having the best looking websites, let alone the most up-to-date ones. But this is different. In addition to the sleekness of its design, the last update was made less than 48 hours ago, and the ones before that were made at even shorter time intervals. In this area, at least, they are leading by example," the magazine notes.
"This is exciting. We are trying to make communication and information flow as easy and accessible as possible and more regularly. This is even going to get better as we train more online reporters and get more involved in social networking media to keep the country updated on the workings of State House and the President," the deputy press secretary to the President, Lindah Nabusayi, said.
