    2017 Website Competition

    Agencies with exceptional websites will receive special recognition and awards at the 2016 FAHRO Annual Convention and Trade Show at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort in Orlando. There will be a winner from one small authority, one medium authority and one large authority. Also, an additional award will be given for best overall layout and design.


    We encourage all FAHRO member agencies to participate. This will be your contribution in the
    development of an “idea bank” which will benefit us all as we struggle to arrive at methods of better addressing the needs of residents of assisted housing.


    Criteria for selection will be as follows:

    • Websites must have an interesting and appealing visual rhythm throughout, with a mix of long and short articles and photos. (max 25 points)
    • Each page must be inviting to read, with photos and captions, to give the reader many entry points. Page appeal can also be accentuated by the select use of color, screening, boxing, type styles, and graphics. (max 25 points)
    • The navigation must be easy to use and also provide residents with a wealth of knowledge about the agency. (max 25 points)
    • Websites must have a consistent "look" throughout. (max 25 points)

    Please email your agency website to Javis@FAHRO.org no later than July 7, 2017 to be considered for this award.

There will be a winner from one small authority, one medium authority and one large authority in each category. Also, an additional award will be given for best overall layout and design.


    We encourage all FAHRO member agencies to participate. This will be your contribution in the
    development of an “idea bank” which will benefit us all as we struggle to arrive at methods of better addressing the needs of residents of assisted housing.


    Criteria for selection will be as follows:

    • Newsletters must have an interesting and appealing visual rhythm throughout, with a mix of long and short articles and photos. (max 25 points)

    • The column format must be easy to read and provide layout flexibility. (max 20 points)
    • The photos must be in focus and exhibit good contrast - absolute musts for readability. Some sort of framing around the photos is usually visually appealing and sets them off from the text. (max 10 points)
