The polls have closed and we are very pleased to announce the winners of our Best of SynthaSite contest for 2009:

Category: Business Websites

The Forty-something site celebrates the milestone in a woman's life with sage advice, good humor and great birthday gifts across multiple pages on a range of subjects from fashion to motherhood.

Category: Personal Websites

The Cosmic Sensorium site makes the most of widgets like Google Search, Disqus Comments and SynthaSite blog to showcase the unique artwork of Diogenes Lamarche.

Congratulations to the winners. They're terrific examples of what anyone can do with the easy-to-use tools at SynthaSite. For even more tips, check out our tutorial, Creating Great Looking Websites.

It's never too early to start thinking about the 2009 Best of SynthaSite.

Great choices! Regarding the Cosmic Sensorium site, how do you make the "lightbox" effect on the images as shown in the picture below?

HI findanindie,

You can create this effect by clicking on "Photogalleries" in the sidebar on the right hand side of the screen in the site builder and then drag & drop the "Flickr Lighbox" onto your page.

You can change the way the images are displayed by click on properties.

This will create the same effect.

It must have been very difficult to determine which site to select as the best. There are so many great sites that have been created here. Congratulations to the winners! Great job & a lot of innovative "work arounds" were done to achieve your sites. They're really wonderful.
