During the month of April, Telecentre-Europe launched a contest among the national partners of Get Online Week 2012 for the best report of the organized activities. PH International of Russia came out as the absolute winner and wins the cash prize of 2000€, followed by our partners in Latvia & Lithuania on equal footing and by another ex aequo of Germany & Moldova.
Congratulations to the winner, and to all the national partners that submitted reports!
Participants could win numerous points by entering different elements (a general report, success stories, photos, videos and a media coverage report). In total, 21 countries participated in the competition. It revealed that lots of smart, original and engaging activities were organized during Get Online Week 2012, for different target groups and around the themes of intergenerational learning, youth employability, active aging, civic participation, social engagement and women in ICT.
GOW12's campaign manager Laurentiu Bunescu and myself acted as the judges of the report contest. This is the conclusion of our jury report:
"The report from Russia was definitely the best report: both the contents & layout were absolutely fabulous: a short introduction that gave a good overview, sticky notes with feedback from participants, an overview of the topics covered by the activities, detailed statistics, a map with an overview of participating cities with participants per cities, a resume of success stories, a description of events per city and a highlighting of the partner that reached most people, all illustrated with the corresponding pictures. There were also 47 (!) beautiful pictures posted as a photo essay album on the community site, all from different activities and each of them well described and commented. Russia also posted 4 great success stories on the community site, well written, well illustrated with pictures and with a good text-picture layout [1 | 2 | 3 | 4]. As for the videos, it was a pity that only 2 videos were entered and only 1 of them was subtitled with some subtitles that were difficult to read. But summing up all points for the different elements and because the general report reached the maximum score, Russia came out as the true winner of this contest".
