Calling All Web Masters

Who is the best Web designer in the country?
In order to find out, as well as inspire the nation’s new media community to become involved in charity, Boston-based Masters of the Web is holding a one-day competition.
Participants will have 24 hours to design a Web site for the Starbright Foundation, chaired by Gen. Norman Schwartzkopf and entertainment mogul Steven Spielberg.
The foundation supports projects for seriously ill children, including Starbright World, a private, interactive computer network for hospitalized kids. The network allows kids to reach out to their peers and others fighting illness.
In addition to a division open to all, 50 top designers will be invited to compete on Nov. 6 in a so-named “masters” division. The winner will be announced in February at a conference hosted by International Data Group.
Boston-based Trinity Communications is developing pro bono Web and print ads for the contest. Ads will break in August.
