The Visionary Design Awards, London, 2 March 2006

The fourth annual Visionary Design Awards, sponsored by Barclays, will be held at the Russell Hotel, London on Thursday 2 March 2006.

Red Dwarf and Scrapheap Challenge star Robert Llewellyn will host the awards ceremony, which will recognise achievement in accessible web design.

Awards will be made for best practice in accessible design of websites for children, young adults, public sector, commercial enterprises, voluntary sector, and news and information. There will also be a presentation of a Special Award for Innovation to a website which is accessible but has also excelled in creating a unique and interesting experience for the visitor too.

For further information on the Visionary Design Awards please contact Claire Briscoe, Press and PR Officer on 0161 355 2050 or via email at

See the NLB’s Visionary Design site for further details.

  1. So says MikeWS

    The NLB (BTW, What does that stand for?) site fails to pass at least one automated test for accessibility for 508 compliance. Only on one point mind you but what should one make of this? Glasshouses and stones spring to mind.
    At least they are not claiming compliance to any accessibilty guidelines, probably because they use nested tables for presentation!
