About the Web Festival
CUC 2001 Web Festival is a special event within the CARNet Users Conference - CUC 2001. By organizing the Web festival, CARNet wants to raise the quality and stimulate the spreading of Croatian Web information space.

The Web Festival offers the authors an opportunity to present their work and compare it with the work of the competitors, and the general public is provided with the best works and an opportunity to grade them.

CUC 2001 Web Festival Topic
In accordance with the Conference topic, CUC 2001 Web Festival will be a competition for the best Internet community Web site. "Internet community" is considered to be a group of people who communicate, exchange ideas, collaborate and work over the Internet.

Web site of such a community provides its members with an opportunity for quality and diverse communication, but also more than that, it also has to make possible a collaboration over the Web. Another desired dimension of the Web site is a contribution for the general public, not only for members of a potentially small community. In accordance with the Internet use principles, where it is expected that something gets "returned" to all users of the Internet, in the grading process, it will be required that the particular Web site is open and useful for the general public. It is also expected that the site is the result of the work of a greater number of the community members.

Conditions and Application
General conditions for the application of a Web site are the following:
- Web site can be entered into the competition only by a person, as opposed to a company
