The competition aims to raise awareness about the benefits of having a web
presence among South African NGOs, stimulate interest in the application of
web solutions and applications, and showcase best practices and innovation
in website use.
We are interested in how organisations are using their websites
strategically to meet their objectives. This is not only about the technical
and design aspects of the website, but also how, as a tool, it works for
development and social justice. The emphasis will be on identifying NGO
websites with unique and relevant features in relation to their overall
Issues which will guide the awards selection include usability,
accessibility, innovation and content, demonstrating how the website is
complementing the core development focus and activities of the organisation.
There are 3 prizes to the value of R10 000 each.
The competition is open to South African NGOs with a website.
Organisations must be able to demonstrate their non-profit status and
involvement in development work in South Africa. The 2006 and 2007 winners
