Water For People Online Reporting Platform Selected as SXSW Interactive Award Finalist
In August of 2012 we announced the launch of the Water For People Re-imagine Reporting Platform Prototype. The online reporting platform offers a new way for philanthropic organizations to manage data and prove their efficacy to stakeholders.
Since the prototype launch, our team has been busy working on the design and development of the next release. While plugging away, we were excited to hear that the Re-imagine Reporting prototype has been selected as a finalist in the Activism category of the 2013 SXSW Interactive Awards!
According to SXSW, the Interactive Awards competition uncovers the best new digital work, from mobile and tablet apps to websites and installations, while celebrating those who are building tomorrow’s interactive trends.
The awards span 15 categories, with five nominees in each category. The Activism category is for green, governmental and non-profit projects that are striving to make the world a better place. Last year, EffectiveUI was honored to be nominated as a finalist in the Motion Graphics category for the Navy Blue Angels website.
The winners of the 2013 SXSW Interactive Awards will be revealed at the 16th Annual Ceremony on Tuesday evening, March 12 at the Hilton Austin Downtown.
Voting is now open for the SXSW People’s Choice Award. The People’s Choice Award is the online public’s favorite finalist site from this year’s Interactive Awards competition. The award goes to the finalist that gets the most votes from the digital community.
Voting is limited to one vote per person and ends at 10 p.m. Central on Sunday, February 17.
