UWSAG Seal of Approval Badges
If your site is approved to be placed on the SOA Nominees List, you will receive an e-mail notification instructing you to come here to download your SOA Nominee Badge. Simply right click and save one of the nominee images on to your server. You are required to link it back to the UWSAG Program. Otherwise, you will receive no nominations. Link the image directly to www.uwsag.com (or the German Version at www.uwsag.com/indexd.shtml). This way, the evaluator can go straight from your site to place your nomination.
The badge must be placed on the main page of your site or in a "Memberships", "Associations" page. Not in your Awards Won section
When applying at a UWSAG Rated Program, be sure to include that you are a Seal of Approval Nominee. This is required for you to receive a nomination from that program. If a UWSAG Rated Program does not have a check box or yes/no box for Seal of Approval Nominees, then include it in the comments of their application.
Continue monitoring the Nominees List while you are applying for awards from UWSAG Rated Programs. Once you have received 10 nominations, you may then display the SOA10 Badge. When you receive 25 nominations, you can display the SOA25 Badge. When you receive 50 nominations, the SOA50 Badge. Be sure to review the rules for revoking a badge or site banning.
Altering the dimensions or compression is not allowed. Any altering of images can result in the revoking of your badge.
