work and compare it with the work of their competitors, at the same
time allowing the general public to evaluate the best achievements.
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

well as those that have been financed in a similar way (e.g. official

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
