NGO Web Awards
The Southern African NGO Network (SANGONeT) invites entries for the 2010 South African NGO Web Awards. Now in its fifth year, the competition continues to raise awareness about the benefits of having a web presence among South African NGOs.
In line with this year's conference theme – “Fundraising in a Digital World”, SANGONeT invites entries for the 2010 NGO Web Awards for two categories:
- Best Use of Website for Online Fundraising
- Best Use of Mobile Technology for Fundraising
The winners will be announced at the SANGONeT Conference on 1 September 2010 in Johannesburg.
The conference focuses on how NGOs are raising money through the Internet, mobile phones and other online applications. Internationally acclaimed inspirational and practical speaker, Ted Hart, renowned for his expertise in both online and traditional fundraising, will be the keynote speaker at the conference.
There are 3 prizes to the value of R10 000 each, sponsored by Torque IT.
