Visit Nunney has been ‘highly commended’ by the judges of the prestigious Good Web Guide Awards.
As a regulated community interest company (CIC), Visit Nunney was judged in the Charity / Social Enterprise category.
The Good Web Guide and its panel of digital industry judges are looking for sites that are original, engaging the visitor from the offset, whether it’s through a unique concept or a user experience that is second to none.
Design: Design doesn’t have to be cutting edge and trendy but of high quality, appropriate, and relevant for the audience and the message it is supporting.
Navigation and structure: This should be intuitive, offering both an immediate overview of what’s on offer with easy access to both the breadth and depth of the site’s content.
Content: This is not limited to copy but can encompass music, sound, animation or video, all of which should be engaging, relevant and appropriate for its audience.
Interactivity: Lets the visitor participate on the site, either through sharing with other users or via social media platforms. Allows the user to give and receive, participate not spectate.
Ease of use: Technology used must work well, with quick page load times, be free of broken links and work on all browsers.
Social media strategy: Although this isn’t a prerequisite for entry, it is hoped that sites are making use of the opportunities that social media offers.
Visit Nunney was a finalist in the same awards for News/Information Website of the Year in 2014 and for Charity / Social Enterprise Website of the Year in 2015.
The Good Web Guide’s Managing Director, Arabella Dymoke, said of our ‘no budget’ village website:
“Visit Nunney shows what you can achieve on a limited budget in providing the community with a useful site. There are websites with limitless resources and access to the best digital brains, but small websites can make waves too. Visit Nunney is a superb example to towns and villages across the UK wanting to improve and grow their presence online.”
Visit Nunney’s editor Adrie van der Luijt works as content strategy consultant for one of this year’s finalists, Cancer Research UK.
The winners of the 2016 Good Web Guide Awards will be announced on Monday 21 November at the Royal Institution of Great Britain in London.
