Very nice overall, it was fun to communicate with designer all over the world. One minor change: As you state in your EULA (if I remember correctly), the money back garanty is voided if I don't respond to at least 80% of submissions. This is a good idea, to motivate the contest holder to participate actively in the creation of his personal design. In my opinion however, some designer abuse this rule by submitting a lot of very similar entries (only a picture changed or similar). I still think those 80% are a good value, but i would like to mark entries as very similar, so those may be excluded from this rule, and I may not need to post multiple times the same comment. I'm pretty sure this would also helpt the deigners to "categorize" their submissions.

Winning design #44 by WebStar, Website Design for Froburger Contest
Gold Medal

Project description

The society called "Froburger" is part of an old tradition at the universities: students engage themselves in student societies, which help them to make connections not only with students of their own subject, but with experts in every field possible. They organise multiple events per year, and also meet themselves weekly or even more often. As they grow older, finish their studies and start working, they keep in touch with new active students, and former colleagues through this society. With their membership contribution, they even help support the active students.

This webpage should help attract young students, so they may also be part of this tradition, but also should be easy to use and appealing for older generations.

Our old website:

Important Points: 
 - Please design the Start Page of the Website.
 - Be aware, that your design should contain an navigation bar somewhere
 - Use this text on the Frontpage:

Nice to have:
- One should be able to adapt the Design of the Frontpage to other pages, and mabye even derieve it to design printable Documents.

A group of those students will discuss all suggestions on 1. of June. Expect detailed feedback on the next day.
On a second meeting, the 8 of June, we will reevaluate all entries, and decide a winner.

    A new apprach, which I do like, however, I have some changereqests:
    - the sign in is not so important, please place it somewhere less central
    - there won't be a sign up
    - we won't be able to use a professional photo as used by you, please replace it with an unedited picture (no cut out background), to see if the design still works
