On the heels of Wellington's 12th placing
in the "Best city in the world" rankings, comes another accolade for our harbour capital. Two websites based in Wellington are up for Webby Awards
The website for Te Papa's Maori Showband
exhibition picked up a nomination in the Cultural Institution category
And the website for the recent New Zealand International Arts Festival
is nominated in the Events category
.New Zealand's tourism website
(which Wellington can't claim exclusively) makes its third return to the Webbys (it has won, but I can't remember how often). For the first time it is facing the Australian version. You may remember the NZ tourism website, it was thrown about it in the media because the government spent a large sum of money to acquire the domain name. Looks like that paid off.
Another nominee (in various categories), The Book of Cool
, features kicking instructions from former All Black Carlos Spencer.
So what next? GO AND VOTE!
