Web Awards 2004
« on: February 17, 2004, 09:59:18 pm »
The New Statesman has again written to this site to announce the New Media Awards 2004. In the past this site has won the Overall Merit Award in 2000 outright and been commended twice, once in 2002, and the other time in 1999.

Probably the most appropriate section to enter this year is the 'Community And Information' section.

If anyone feels inclined to nominate this site you can find the form by clicking here.

This year they also have a site of the month award, but we are a bit late, the competition has been open for nominations since December.

Thanks to all those who've nominated the site in the 'Community And Information' section of the New Statesman New Media Awards 2004.

It now entitles the site to display a logo on the site. It's supposed to go on the front page, but I'll stick it here  because I'm not sure whether the colours work together.

;D

Again, thanks to all those who've nominated the Brookmans Park Newsletter for the New Statesman New Media Award 2004.

Just a reminder, this site is built and run by a team of three, so it's a team effort. However, that effort would have no value at all if people didn't use the site and contribute content to it by posting to the forum, writing features, giving permission for books and articles to be published, and submitting photographs. So it's really a community project, with the content being created by the community. That is what will be judged. We just string it all together. Thanks to all who make the site what it is.

This site has made it through to the shortlist for the New Statesman New Media Awards 2004. There were 120 entries in the 'Community' section. That has been boiled down to the final ten, and the Brookmans Park Newsletter is one of them.

The finalists will be announced next month, and there will be an awards ceremony in London for the winners.

In the past, this site has won the Overall Merit Award in 2000 outright and been commended twice, once in 2002, and also in 1999.

as long as it's not one of the 'doggy bags' that have been collected from Gobions then that would be great...

;D

No Aidan, I meant Doggy Bag as in

A bag given to a customer in a restaurant or to a guest at a party etc. for putting leftovers in to take home.

The awards ceremony for the New Statesman New Media Awards 2004 is Thursday 15 July. Two of us are going along to represent the site. Fingers crossed everyone. Here is a picture of the invite.

Thanks Supersonic,

Here are the final ten sites (originally around 100) in the Community and Information category. It gives an idea who we are up against.

there were a few trays of quail eggs and spring rolls, but they wouldn't have kept. The wine was superb however, that wouldn't have kept either.
