Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Arts minister Estelle Morris yesterday launched a web design competition for students aged 11-14 and studying at school in England.

The Web Design challenge is a joint project by the Hansard Society and the Design Museum, and is commissioned and funded by Culture Online, part of the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Children will be invited through their schools to design home pages on citizenship-related issues, such as criminal justice, religion and the environment. In January, 2005 a panel of judges will select 200 children to attend design master classes in February 2005 at Urbis, Manchester; Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead; Watershed, Bristol; and the Design Museum in London.

The shortlisted children will then have to design a website entitled 'Being Heard'. In summer 2005, five schools will be invited to a prize-giving celebration at the Design Museum and the winner's site will go live. Other prizes include laptops, games consoles and design resources.

Judges include Danny Brown, winner of the Designer of the Year Award 2004, and Alice Rawsthorn, director of the Design Museum. ®
