Yesterday at the CMS Spotlight Awards, Watchful was selected as the Best Joomla App for 2012-2013.

The CMS Spotlight Awards are the highlight of each CMS Expo, the conference focusing on content management systems held annually in Evanston, Illinois, USA.

Joomla always has a large presence at this conference and this year was no exception. 

Joomla projects and agencies also did well at the Spotlight Awards, taking three of the six awards, including of course best Joomla App.

Watchful co-founder Pierre-André Vullioud () — who owns the Swiss web design agency inetis — was thrilled with the result.

“I’m really honored to win this award, but more so I am proud of the Watchful team here in Europe and in America. Everyone is excited by the news and we’re motivated to re-double our efforts and make Watchful even better.”

Victor Drover () — Watchful co-founder and owner of the Milwaukee-based web development firm Anything Digital () — was on hand to collect the award (see photo above).
