Award Sites 2.5

Fromper Award Application

This is an award for sites that not only demonstrate creativity, but encourage it in others.

To see if you qualify for this award, I need:

    Mandatory:
    The URL of your site
    Optionally:
    Your name and email address
    The title of your site
    Your own comments about the site and your mission
    The URL's of three people who were inspired to do something themselves, by your site. For instance, I would list all the bards at StreetWrites. I claim particular credit for inspiring the StreetWrites HaiKu and LowKu.

    I list those items as optional because I should be able to get them from your site. If you don't give me an address or have an email address, guestbook or some way of getting feedback from your site, I won't be able to let you know whether you've won the award. If your mission isn't clear from your site, and you don't promote the work of others, this isn't an award you want to apply for.

I will let you know within 4 weeks if you have won the Fromper Award. However, I've got a lot of other mail to answer, too, so I don't send out notices if you didn't win. If you don't hear from me within a month, check over the criteria again.

The most frequent reasons I haven't given the award have been:
  1. the site is about you and your interests, but does not celebrate others or contribute to their growth;
  2. the site does not pass Bobby's accessibility criteria.
  3. the site does not offer any free content; creative, inspirational or educational material for sale is not enough to qualify for this award.

If your site changes in the future (and changing any of those characteristics can only bring you more traffic!) then you are welcome to re-apply.

If the Frompers agree that they like to dance on your pages, I will send you the award by email, or, if you cannot receive attachments, send you a page address where you can download  the award graphic. I ask that you post it in a suitable position of honor on your page, with a link back to http://anitra.net/ -- and to give me a graphic to post on my award page and link back to you. If you do not have a graphic logo or button, I will be happy to help you create one.

If I find your site inspirational, I may even write something about you myself.

The award graphic is 250x250 in page size and 10K in file size. If that is tooo big for your page design you are free to resize it as long as you keep it in width/height proportion and legible. Or just ask me to resize it for you.

Of course, you don't have to display the graphic at all if you don't want to. I'm not sure why you'd apply for an award if you aren't going to display it, but what you display is up to you. :-) But if you do display the graphic, you must link it to my site.

Please be sure you have read the criteria before submitting your site.

Mandatory:

Site address:

Optional: (Only because I should be able to get them from your site.)

Site title:

Your name:

Your e-mail address:

If you don't give me an address or have an email address, guestbook or some way of getting feedback from your site, I won't be able to let you know whether you've won the award.

What is your site about? Do you have a mission statement?

Who has this site inspired, and how?

I would really like to see the URL's of some people who were inspired to do something themselves, by your site. For instance, I would list all the bards at StreetWrites. I claim particular credit for inspiring the StreetWrites HaiKu and LowKu.

If your mission isn't clear from your site, and you don't promote the work of others, this isn't an award you want to apply for.
