Accessify In Shortlist for SXSW Web Awards
It gives me great pleasure in breaking my posting drought to announce that
Accessify’s Tools & Wizards
page (home of such tools as the List-O-Matic,
Acrobot and other accessibility
related tools) is in the shortlist for this year’s web awards at the South by
South West Web Awards. It’ll be in great company (as
the other shortlisted sites show) and I’m personally very pleased that it
got as far as this (I certainly didn’t expect it to).
The problem I have now is that I feel duty-bound to go along and attend, which
is no easy thing as I recently took a career break and am currently
on the other side of the world watching the budget very carefully! If anyone
can help me with this predicament, I’d love to hear from you. Ah, so here’s
where the begging bowl gets reeled out …
If you would be willing to sponsor my trip from Sydney (where I expect to be
by early March) to Austin Texas, I could do the following:
- Add a company logo/credit and link back on the Tools
& Wizards page (anyone visiting SXSW’s nominations list will be pointed
to this page). This is not the same as the standard footer text that is on
Accessify’s pages - it will be more prominent than this.
- Mention to anyone I meet personally how gracious you’ve been by helping
me to be there.
- If the site wins, I will ensure that the sponsor gets a mention in the acceptance
speech and on the post-event video that they shoot with the winning entries
Note that this page will be getting significantly higher visits as a result
of the award nomination and sponsoring this page will offer greater exposure
for anyone willing to help out. Please also note that I would prefer any potential
sponsor to be an Internet-related business (web design/hosting/consultancy/development
etc); it also make most sense to the sponsor, as it will be primarily web professionals
who will be visiting this page from SXSW’s site.
