Want to use Web 2.0 to make the world better?

Thanks to a grant recently awarded by UnLTd and Nominet Trust and to the collaboration of the Universidad Internacional de Andalucía (UNIA),Wikichains.com will redesign its site interface and introduce some new features.

In order to select people to develop and implement the redesign, we are launching a competition that will allow designers and programmers to submit bids to work on these changes. We are looking for proposals that will provide us with an approximate image of the final product. Feel free to suggest improvements with regard to any aspect of Wikichains.com. In addition to innovation and visual attractiveness, the jury will also positively value proposals by the following criteria:

• access to the site by means of mobile devices,
• connections with UPC codes and bar codes,
• integration of other external services that may be useful for the aims of the project,
• facilitating visualization of commodity chains (for example through use of maps).

Submissions will be judged by an international panel and the selected proposal will be awarded a prize of €3000. Our official flyer can be accessed here. Please spread this call as widely as possible!
