DSWD in search for website design to promote its best practices
MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Social Welfare and Development is holding a website design tilt and the winning design will be used by the agency in promoting best practices.
The competition, dubbed the “Savvy Innovations, Zesty Exchange (SIZE) Matters” Website Development Contest, started last August 4 and will run until September 15.
It is open to all freelance professionals, students, and out-of-school youths, including those with disabilities.
A DSWD statement described the contest as being in line with its thrust to involve and empower the youth in government.
The competition will be “an online showcase of innovative ideas and practices of the DSWD, which aims to reinvent the things we do and the way we do things.”
“The winning website design will be launched and serve as a platform where one can discuss and develop progressive proposals and practices. The site aims to enhance peer participation and encourage convergence and sharing of ideas,” said Social Welfare Secretary Corazon Soliman.
Interested participants can download and accomplish entry forms at facebook/osm.dswd and osm.dswd.gov.ph, where the mechanics of the contest are also outlined.
The deadline of submission of entries is on September 15.
Announcements regarding the contest will be posted in the DSWD’s Facebook and Twitter accounts website, information and technology schools, parishes and churches, barangay halls, and train stations.
Once established, the site will be used as “a long-term open platform for mass collaboration to tap knowledge from outside to find solutions to the demands and challenges of the DSWD, particularly in good governance and social protection.”
