Rules of the Contest

1. About the Web Festival
Web Festival is a special event within the CARNet Users Conference - CUC 2002. Through the Web Festival the organizers want to improve the quality and expand the Croatian Web information space.
Web Festival provides the authors with an opportunity to present their work and compare it with the work of their competitors, at the same time allowing the general public to evaluate the best achievements.

2. CUC 2002 Web Festival Topic
This year the Web Festival will be a competition for the best unofficial Web site created as a result of enthusiasm of an individual or a smaller group of authors guided by the idea of promoting on the Web a certain idea or topic familiar to the author and of interest to the wider public. The organizer has defined three categories of Web sites:

  • Web site which presents the geographical entity:
    This category includes non-commercial Web sites that represent, for instance, a country, region, city, town, place, district, lake, sea, river, island, natural attractions, etc. Web sites that cannot take part in the competition are all the official Web sites, as well as those that have been financed in a similar way (e.g. official city sites, tourist associations, agencies, etc.).

  • Web site which presents a social group:
    This category includes Web sites which informally present to the public, for instance, a class, sport community, religious community, society, organization, association, etc. Web sites that cannot take part in the competition are the official sites as well as the commercially oriented or sponsored sites (e.g. official sites of the registered companies or societies of citizens, schools, and faculties).

  • Web site which presents activities and phenomena:
    This category covers Web sites that present to the wider public hobbies or interests of the author or a group of authors, such as sport, excursions, etc. In accordance with the defined criteria, official or commercial Web sites cannot take part in the competition.
    Personal home pages do not take part in the competition since their topic does not comply with the rules prescribed by the Rules.
    There are no restrictions regarding physical location of the registered Web sites.

3. Conditions and Application
General conditions for the application of the Web site are the following:

  • the Web site may be entered for the competition only by a natural person, a Croatian citizen or member of the Croatian diaspora,

  • the language used at the entered Web site has to be Croatian or English,
  • one person can enter only one Web site,
  • one Web site can be entered for competition only in one category.

If the Web site does not fulfill the mentioned conditions, the Jury has the right to disqualify the Web site from further competition. The jury will tend to solve all the problematic situations in compliance with the objectives of the Web Festival Organization.
