McFarlane Prize Nominations Open!
July 19, 2007 at 12:20 AM
Nominations have just opened for the McFarlane Prize for 2007. This prize for excellence in Australian web design will be awarded to an Australian designer or team for a site launched or significantly upgraded between August 1 2006 and July 31 2007.
The winner of the prize will be announced during Web Directions South, on September 27.
In 2006, its first year, the prize was an enormous success, bringing attention as it did to web standards and accessibility, in combination with excellence in user experience design, and giving recognition to those people and organisations who genuinely address these areas in their work.
A very high standard was set with the entries last year, but we fully expect that standard to be exceeded in 2007.
Full details are available at the McFarlane Prize site, but key dates areas follows:
August 31 - Nominations close
September 22 - Shortlist announced
September 27 - Winner of the McFarlane Prize for 2007 announced
