Web designers do not have as lively a reputation as some of their peers in the creative arts. The image of overworked technophiles hunched over their computers endlessly clicking away on one Dream Weaver project after another, does not convey an overwhelming sense of fun. Yet one event is hoping to change this stodgy image, as the Webdesign International Festival promises to be the "Craziest" design competition in the world.
The three-year-old event, is an international festival created to allow talented digital content designers from around the globe a chance to showcase their talents, meet and exchange ideas. The WIF boasts a group of workshops, lectures, roundtable discussions and training sessions for current and aspiring design professionals.
The highlight of the event is the Webjam design competition, a 24-hour non-stop contest that pits the top web design specialists of the world against each other. Thirty-five teams, ranging between one and three memberss, will be invited to Limoges, France, to compete in the daylong competition for cash prizes and acclaim.
The competition welcomes challengers of all skill levels in the fields of web and graphic design, motion capture, interactive designers and more.
