With just under a week to go, the Japan Web Page Contest, run by the Japan Foundation, is really hotting up. I was delighted to have been asked to take part in the judging, and have spent a good deal of time this weekend getting myself familiarised with the 10 finalists. The standard of web pages created has been fantastic - and with each entry being judged on breadth and quality of content, originality, and design, as well as on ease of use, picking a winner will not be easy. The judges are also looking at how each website showcases what each school are doing to promote Japanese language and culture, and how each website can serve to raise awareness as well. If you haven't already done so, check out the competition page, and vote for your favourite!
