Another BCS MP Web Awards triumph for HBR
HBR are celebrating once again after taking home two of the five awards on offer at this year’s BCS MP Web Awards.
Jim Murphy, Shadow Secretary of State for Defence scooped the Engagement Award completing a triumphant third successive win for HBR in this category and Diane Abbott, Shadow Minister for Public Health became this year’s winner of the Usability Category.
This is the third time The Chartered Institute for IT (formerly the British Computer Society) has run their coveted MP Web Awards and HBR have successfully managed to pick up an award in all three years, bringing our total to five.
Director Andy Hudson said
“I’m absolutely delighted for Jim Murphy and Diane Abbott and also that our websites have garnered this level of recognition from such an eminent group of judges and the BCS.” Diane Abbott MP collecting the Usability Award
The judging panel consisted of: Quentin Letts of the Daily Mail, Mark Say, editor of Government Computing, Matthew Windle, a member of Youth Parliament and Rachel Gibson, Professor of Political Science at the University of Manchester.
The Awards recognise the best sites across a number of categories. Judges looked for sites that successfully engage, excite, provide information and encouraged two-way communication between MPs and their constituents. In addition, judging criteria took into account ease of use of the site, including navigation, accessibility and use of social media.
