Joschi's own site belongs to the
*TOP TEN most awarded sites*,
so he's constantly in search of other sites which stand above the rest. For those sites which he considers to be really outstanding in content and design he offers four awards with one general award *Award of Excellence*, one family related *Family Site Award*, one pet related (dogs) *Joschi's Award* and special awards for the most awarded *Top 12* dog sites and the *Most Awarded Personal Homepages*.
All awards must be earned! All submitted sites will be visited and judged carefully by two persons who both must agree that the site meets the CRITERIA and deserves an award.

No obviously incomplete sites.
Must be family friendly, no obscene or offensive content whatsoever.
