Launch of the
Dot Award 2014 contest!
Dot Awards 2014 !
For the second year running, Afnic is organizing the Dot Award contest with the Registry for the .cat TLD and various international counterparts. Designed for secondary and high school pupils and university students, the contest rewards the best websites with the .fr TLD in three different categories: Design, Content and Information & Communication Technologies. The best projects will be rewarded by gifts such as tablets but also vouchers worth 750 euros. For Afnic, a strategic player in digital creation for the .fr TLD, the primary objective is to encourage academic projects on web sites, so that young people get involved in the Internet as producers and not simply as web users, and become future ambassadors for digital creation! So don't hesitate to spread the word about the Dot Award contest and promote digital creation for the .fr TLD!
