Technical (and Creative) Info On Both Contests:

Proposed new designs do not need to be fully functional pages, just flat designs. WFMU's website is managed by a database-driven content management system, with various dynamic elements, so the winning design will have its functionality built into it by our database designer, Kenzo.

All pages should be designed so that they would function in various screen resolutions and across various platforms. But people entering this contest should not get bogged down over functionality or compatibility issues, since this will be addressed when Kenzo implements the winning designs on his system. We are looking mostly for creative design concepts that clearly organizes and presents WFMU's vast website.

Proposed designs should not utilize Frames, Java, Javascript or Flash.

Please include all of the elements on the current homepage at wfmu.org in the new proposed design.

Technical Info On Homepage Redesign Contest:

All elements on the current WFMU homepage at wfmu.org should be represented on any proposed designs. These elements include the navigation bar, News From The Freeform Front, the rotating picture, the rotating joke, What's playing today, etc etc.

Technical Info For The On The Download Contest:

In the future, WFMU's On The Download Page will incorporate all WFMU's on-demand audio and video into one portal. The elements will include MP3s, Podcasts, Soundbites, Movies, Ringtones,etc. The new On The Download page should allow users to browse the on-demand media offerings by by month, artist name, and category (as the current system allows), but also by format and album.
