Public Interest Registry, the not-for-profit operator of the .ORG domain, today announced the launch of its . as part of an ongoing effort to empower nonprofit organizations and groups to effectively advance their causes online.
Today through November 8, Public Interest Registry is accepting nominations from leaders and representatives of organizations and nonprofits for a chance to win a newly designed .ORG website from OmniStudio, a Washington, D.C.-based firm specialized in web design and consulting for nonprofit and advocacy groups.
Authorized representatives of any organization – from nonprofits and community groups to corporate foundations and arts and culture venues – are eligible to participate during the open nomination period and share how a newly designed website will help further its mission. A panel of judges will then select up to 10 contest finalists who will advance to the two-week open voting period beginning November 25 where members, supporters and the general public can vote for their favorite organization.
The winning organization will be given the opportunity to work with OmniStudio as the firm designs and develops a new .ORG website. OmniStudio has teamed with Public Interest Registry for the contest as a part of its annual ReachOut Project. Now in its fifth year, OmniStudio ReachOut 2014 aims to help charities and nonprofits revitalize their visual branding to better attract donations, volunteer participation and media attention.
The .ORG Website Makeover Contest will give a deserving organization the means to further communicate their mission. We’re delighted to be working alongside Public Interest Registry on this contest to help give back to organizations that are committed to the greater good.”
