BOSTON — Attention all Boston-area non-profit organizations, a group of web designers is giving away a free web site makeover — and it could be yours! The effort is a partnership between the World Organization of Webmasters (WOW), a not-for-profit professional association that provides education and support for web professionals; Web Design World, a web-design conference that takes place at the Westin Copley on December 8-10; and Bizland, a website-hosting company.
“We’re calling it the Extreme Markover,” said Bill Cullifer, Executive Director of WOW, “and our goal is to provide a deserving non-profit organization with a website that showcases today’s best design practices, which is exactly what WOW and the Web Design World conference strive to teach.”
Boston-area non-profit organizations are invited to submit their existing site for consideration by going to the Extreme Markover site (www.extrememarkover.org). A panel including some of the world’s top web designers will review the sites and choose one for the makeover. Selected WOW members will then implement the design, and designers everywhere can follow along through frequent podcast interviews, tutorial articles, and more.
The deadline for submissions is Monday, November 24.
