VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - May 19, 2015) - Blender is proud to announce the acceptance of the 2015 IMA Best In Class Award for the Investor Relations category.

The Interactive Media Awards recognizes organizations and individuals for their outstanding achievement in website design and development. The Best in Class award is the highest honor bestowed by the IMAs. It represents the very best in planning, execution and overall professionalism. This year Blender won the award for its design and development of the Silver Standard Resources website.

"When it comes to investor relations websites, companies often play it safe. Blender is determined to change that. With each new project, we aim to create something that pushes the boundaries," said Arash Adnani, President of Blender. "We're proud to be recognized for our continuous drive to bring innovation to digital investor relations."

To win this award each entry has to successfully pass through a comprehensive judging system.
