The team is proud to announce The Mini Ark website for winning an award for Outstanding Achievement for excellence in the design, development and implementation in the recently concluded Interactive Media Awards.
The honor, granted by the Interactive Media Awards, recognizes that the project met and surpassed the standards of excellence that comprise the web’s most professional work. The judging consisted of various criteria, including design, usability, innovation in technical features, standards compliance and content. In order to win this award level, the site had to meet strict guidelines in each area – an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each year.
Out of a possible 500 points, our website received an overall score of 478 in the Religion category, scoring perfect in feature functionality but 2 points short for Best In class award.
We are thrilled to have our site recognized with such a prestigious award. This serves as an inspiration for us to keep on producing quality Bible content for the whole family as well as improving the sites overall functionality.

As you may know, The Mini Ark website was down for several days due to hosting security issues. Now the Bible storybooks are back and can be accessed once again. We thank you all storybook followers and subscribers for your patience as we work to improve the Bible Storybook reading experience and regret any inconvenience this has caused.
Artists and writers at The Mini Ark are working so hard to finish two new stories every month. We will be publishing stories from Matthew chapter 11 and Genesis chapter 11.
As of the moment, our graphic artist are just fine tuning all the artworks and hopefully be ready by next week. So always check us back for announcements or follow us on Twitter.
Below is sneak peak of the pages that we have finished so far.
Last month, we launched the website – showed it to public in a beta version. We made sure that almost all the major pages are working properly, except for some of the minor pages that we still figuring out a way to present it nicely. Although we manage to send out posts and messages to social media, like Facebook and Pinterest, the site is not yet SEO ready and with no other online marketing promotions to go by.
Unexpectedly, last week we have reached 100 of unique visitor registered on the website. What a great way to start the 1st month! The whole team is very happy and inspired with this small achievement and we promise to used this momentum to continue creating storybooks until we finished all chapters of the Bible.
This will be a long-term project and we hope you will continue your support.
