Communication Technology (CTEC) and Visual Communication (VisComm) Divisions of the Association for Education in Journalism & Mass Communication (AEJMC) co-sponsor this great Web and app design contest competition every year and we invite you and your students to enter. We have divided the categories into Large (10K+ undergraduate student body) and Small (Under 10K undergraduate student body). Entries submitted to this competition should advance education or research in journalism and/or mass communication. The contest is open to faculty and/or students who work for or attend an institution that is accredited by the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (ACEJMC) or are current (paid) members of the AEJMC. University and college staff are not eligible. There is no entry fee, so please spread the word among your colleagues and students.
Best of the Web/Best of Digital competition consists of eight categories: Individual/Team/Single class designation for Web and app, and Multiple class/Institution designation for Web and app. The Individual/Team/Single categories consist of entries that have been designed and/or created by an individual, a small team or a single class. The Multiple class/institution categories consist of entries that have been designed and/or created by several classes collaborating on a single project or by a school or department collaborating on a single project.
Web and app design professionals and academics with a background in Web and app design technology are responsible for judging the competition. Judging primarily focuses on the design, presentation, and technological components of the project.
