Best Online Exhibition Site
Any web site that excels in presenting and interpreting museum collections and themes by providing a rich and meaningful virtual experience. This may be a section of a larger museum web or a collaborative project between institutions and/or individuals and communities associated with museums. Entirely virtual museums are eligible to participate in this category. Desirable features may include:
- Effective use of multiple media formats
- Innovative ways of complimenting physical exhibitions or providing surrogates for physical experiences in online only exhibitions
- New ways of representing museum processes and structures
- Imaginative audience participation and engagement of different categories of 'visitors'
- Exhibitions of web art and other "born digital" collections
