Subject: Museums and the Web 98: Best of the Web Contest

From: "J. Trant" <jtrant@archimuse.com>

Once again, the 1998 Best of the Web Contest will be held in conjunction
with Museums and the Web, the only international conference devoted to
museums' use of the World Wide Web. [The full program for MW98 is
available at the conference web site: http://www.archimuse.com/mw98/]

Awards will be made by an international panel of judges, representing the
spectrum of those involved in web site development in museums including
previous winners, students, artists and initiators of innovative projects.
The criteria used for evaluation of the best museum Web sites will be based
on the draft Criteria for Evaluating Museum Multimedia (see
http://www.arch.imuse.com/cidoc/cidoc.mmwg.eval.crit.html) put together
by the ICOM/CIDOC Multimedia Working Group in Nuremburg in Sept. 1997.

Return the on-line nomination form (http://www.archimuse.com/mw98/frame_best
html) to nominate your favourite site for consideration. The winners will
be announced at the opening ceremony in Toronto. Prizes include free
registration at Museums and the Web 99 for the institution judged Best Over

Rewarding innovative projects, whose conception illustrates the
possibilities for future designs on the Web is a the concern for all
involved in museum web projects. Please join me in ensuring that the Best
of the Web is a great venue for this.
