MWXX: Let’s get critical

Submit your projects for MWXX Crit Rooms

Bring your museum websites, mobile apps and videos to Museums and the Web 2016 to be reviewed by peers and experts in a Crit Room.

Submissions are due by March 31, 2016 and the Crits all take place on Friday 8 April.

To submit a project use the MW submission form and select the appropriate type of Crit room (Inclusive Design Crit, Mobile Crit, Video Crit, and Web Crit). A representative of the project (preferably the manager/designer/developer/videographer) must be registered for the conference and in attendance to have the project reviewed. In the session representatives explain their intentions and the expert panel reviews the project assessing how well those intentions have been realized and suggesting strategies that might have improved it.

Submit your project for a critique on a first-come, first served basis (approximately four projects can be assessed in each 1.5 hour crit session).
