Description:

Awards website where 1. Female contestants can submit application/upload photos which are then rated by the general public. Each profile should have below or beside it and below it --box space for sponsors/ads 2. Nominations for Awards in various environmental categories in a pull-down (Education, Housing, Transport, Health, Climate Change, Afforestation, Govt. Policy, Water, Waste etc) . The submitted photos should appear automatically on the front page which forms a gallery. Users can click any one photo from the gallery and it goes to the profile page of the contestant--where she is rated.

Engaging, enticing and glamorous home page layout and contentFeature content and include gallery of most recent  contestants.

Engaging feedback optionsImplement creative voting, rating and commenting options to enable visitors to participate in the contest, provide feedback and interact with content. Ability to extend content to public social networksUsers should be able to share content on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as third-party blogs to boost contest awareness, brand reach, and traffic.

What I want:

Both the environmental awards and the pageant will take place on one day in one event. So the two go hand in hand. Once a user lands on the site, they will see that they are being prodded/urged to do two things 1. vote for the pageant contestants 2. nominate a person/institution. After nominations close, they will be urged to vote for the environmental nominees. l

ENVIRONMENTAL AWARDS--Users will be doing two things with regard to nominees--1. nominating --then once nomination period is closed--2. Voting. To nominate, a user should click a link from the homepage to where the nomination form is -(very simple form-NAME, INSTITUTION, BACKGROUND, CATEGORY WITH DROP DOWN FORM) . A few of the Environmental Awards Nominees photos and their names and titles-should also appear on the front page lower after the pageant contestant photos--a link will then take the user to the Nominees page. Users should be urged to Vote for the nominees through prominent Call to Action.. All nominees will be in one page in the form of a gallery. The Nominees page will be divided into the various categories going down vertically.

Flow of Homepage

The logos of the organizations involved. The Green Planet Foundation, Miss Green Planet Organization

Slider for photos

Space for text--Introductory statement—etc such as:

Join us in our crusade to help combat climate change. If we each make small changes to the way we live our daily lives we can all make big changes for our environment. It's time to be aware and to take a stand for our planet. The best step towards the eco or nature conservation is the use of eco friendly products in our day to day life. These include environmentally friendly, non-toxic, and sustainable products including building materials, flooring, adhesives, paints and finishes, printing, vehicles, clothing, office supplies, foods, automobiles, cosmetics ecetera.

Miss Green Planet 2012

Beauty for Eco Change

Will you be the next Miss Green Planet?

This should be on top of the button :Submit today

Photos

This means the idea is to urge the visitor to go to the gallery page--

A statement can be added:

To our esteemed visitors Help select the Miss Green Planet 2012. Please go to Contestant gallery and Vote for the contestant you feel should hold the title of Miss Green Planet

This is a statement that we should be able to edit.

VOTE NOW—CHOOSE MISS Green Planet --Instead of rating, we simply want people to vote for one person. That would mean below every photo, there would be something clickable –A click generating a tick --and that would be that user's choice. And the total votes cast for that contestant would go up. Can people change their minds? Yes people should be able to switch their votes by un-clicking.

Become a Sponsor button can be added somewhere on the front page. We will add the sponsor page ourselves.

Green Planet Awards 2012

Nominations open for the Green Planet Awards

We invite members of the environmental community to look back at the past year and nominate great environmental innovations, programs, institutions, individuals, organizations and businesses for recognition specifically for their work in helping reduce emission of greenhouse gases. The full list of award categories and the submission form can be found at the nominations page.

What I don't Want:

clutter, dullness

#4--your is the nearest to what we are looking for)--especially the Slider (not as good as Miss Earth's http://www.missearth.tv/ but still good--the choice of navigation color (light gold) is excellent. However--our desire is for a frame which is solid consistently. For example see http://www.missgreenplanet.tv and http://www.missuniverse.com/ and see how Miss Earth Website ends at the bottom.
#5--Same issues address in reference to #4. In terms of appearance your earlier draft was better, mainly because the yellow and green clash so much. Black navigation not was bad. But color green should be very solid. Also the frame issue --its too flat. See Websites above.

To #1 and #3

1. 1. You both get the concept. Now it is just a question of fine-tuning it so that it the Website has the necessary glamor and punch.
2. Our three main competitors are miss world, miss universe and miss earth. I invite you to take a hard look at their Websites listed below. If you remove the words on those templates so that they are bare, ask yourself what makes them tick? Our objective in this design project is to get a template that equals or is better than those three. So before we evaluate the arrangement of various frames on the website, there is the critical issue of the template 1. overall quality and feel 2. texture etc.

http://www.missworld.com/
http://www.missearth.tv/
http://www.missuniverse.com/

3. The purpose of the website. This website is not for missgreenplanet.com. It is for greenplanet awards.com. What is the difference? The difference is that the former is where the titlewinner will be highlighted. The purpose of greenplanetawards.com however is to offer a platform for registration. The Website is a selling website. The visitor should be immediately be met with a call to action.
Various types of visitors in order of importance:
a). Potential contestants—they should get a call to action urging them to take part. Click the link-be the next miss green planet etc. So this is more important than the gallery. The gallery is the result of the action, should be at the bottom
b). Environmentalists-There should be a call to action to nominate eco-heroes—please. See example here: http://primtechnology.ca/projects/tegi/Tegi3A7/ On the right hand there is a MAZINGIRA AWARDS 2012.
We should have that call to action headed GREEN PLANET AWARDS 2012—We invite members. Of the environmental community......etc.

The categories will not be displayed on the front page. We can simply explain to the visitor that they can nominate—they can click then they can go to the nomination page and fill the form. The categories will be in the forms (so I apologize if it was a little confusing in the draft as those notes were for an earlier developer).

c). Fans of contestants—These are the people who may be interested in voting for the contestants. They are not rating the photos—they will be choosing only one.
d). Sponsors—Potential sponsors can also get a call to action a shown in the draft http://primtechnology.ca/projects/tegi/Tegi3A7/. Please do not use this draft as model. We do not like it—that's why we are doing the contest.
