View Full Version : Get your site in a magazine

Hi there,

Anyone interested in getting feedback on their site may be interested in this:

I'm working on the relaunch and redesign of a mag called Practical Web Design. We've got lots of changes planned, one of which is a Readers' Sites section:

Every month we'll select the best of the sites entered and the ones that we feature will be graded and given feedback by our experts. There'll be one prize-winner every month and there'll also be a league table that all the featured sites will be entered into for our annual grand prize of a high-end pc and a year's free hosting. Once you're in the league table, if you make any improvements to your site, you can resubmit it to work your way up the table and go for that big prize.

We're also going to introduce a Site Makeover section, so get in touch with me if you think your site needs an overhaul and you'd like to see what a web design pro can come up with for you.

If any of you web design enthusiasts (no pros please!) fancy taking part in either of these magazine sections, email me at tina.pluchino@futurenet.co.uk and i'll send you the details of what we'll need from you.

bye for now

Sounds great! :)
erm.. how do you define a 'pro'?

a Professional

1 ) A skilled practitioner; an expert.

2 ) Someone who uses this technology as their main employment

3 ) someone who has a professional qualification in the field

I have 2) and 3) !

my Colleagues would argue against me acheiving the dizzy heights of 1)

Nice Idea but hard to police

NOTE: What tina is looking for is great design and ease of use. I have found that you can teach anyone to code to a high standard over time but you cant teach design skills. Its a gift.

some of the most ugly sites have been designed by people with computer science degrees (check out any college web site and you will find the dreaded offending department website)
