London web developer rTraction (they did the new Harrison Pensa website) has just launched a contest that will result in a new website for a charity created for free by rTraction. Anyone can nominate a charity with a bad website. 10 finalists will be chosen based on criteria ranging from copyrighting to broken links to using comic sans fonts. Assuming those charities agree to participate, the finalist sites will be published for public voting.
If you know of a bad charity website that needs an update, or if you are that charity, make your nomination before February 21.
The story behind the contest is interesting – it is tied to the contest that London inspired to have the CBC’s Jian Ghomeshi host a show in London.
