Shortlisted for GC Award

It was very gratifying to learn on Monday that ClacksWeb is one of three government sites shortlisted for the 'Accessibility Award' in the e-Government category of the Good Communication Awards 2005  (External link). I'll be popping down to London on 7th November for the awards event, hosted by Phil Woolas MP, Minister for Local Government, to learn the decision of the judging panel, and even if we don't win it's great exposure for the Council.

Hey, congrats! Good luck with the decision. It's good to see the GCA has a nice accessible website too.

Good news indeed!

worthy of a mention on the GAWDS site (which can of course link to here...)

Do you know who you are up against?

Cheers Rich. Feel free to post on GAWDs - I can't login for some reason and I'm not *that* much of a self-publicist anyway. ;O)

Don't know yet who else is up for it, the shortlists are going to be posted on the 31st October. I can think of a few good contenders from local government but won't make the mistake of naming them! It's great that the award exists at all - it's nice to see the importance of accessibility acknowledged.

I was there. A worthwhile event I thought.
