Radix Announces Global Web Design Contest, F3.space

Radix, the world’s 3rd largest nTLD domain portfolio registry, today announced the launch of a global web design contest, F3.space. Through this contest, web designers, developers and existing customers are invited to submit their website on any of the 9 gTLDs operated by Radix, such as .ONLINE, .TECH, .SPACE, .STORE, .PRESS, .SITE, .WEBSITE, .HOST and .FUN. Submissions can be made on F3.space to compete for prizes worth USD 30,000. The contest will have weekly and monthly winners, chosen based on public votes as well as evaluation by the judges on the panel. This is an initiative to engage existing nTLD users as well as to promote the usage of nTLDs among the global web design community.

Speaking about the contest, Sandeep Ramchandani, VP and Business Head, Radix, said, “Radix is focused on engaging with end users through various initiatives. While we are actively working with the global startup community through the Startup League and the tech programmers through numerous hackathons, with F3.space we are focusing specifically on the web design community.” With the total prize money of USD 30,000, F3.space is one of the biggest design contests in the world.

With F3.space, Radix will not only engage participants, but also those in their social networks since winners will be chosen based on public votes in addition to evaluation by the judges. To make this initiative even bigger, Radix will also work with Registrars and invite their customers to participate in the contest.

The judges on the panel of F3.space are Chad Borlase, Group Creative Director, SapientRazorfish, Toronto; Laura Müller, UX Lead, MetaDesign, Berlin; and Hakarl Bee, Group Creative Director at RAPP, New York City. The submissions will be evaluated on three criteria—Form, Function and Flair (F3). The contest is open to anyone who has an existing website on any of Radix’s TLDs, as well as those who have an inclination towards web design, including small and medium sized agencies and freelancers. The winning designs will be showcased to an international community of designers, developers and creative thinkers, and users can vote for the designs they like the best.

Last year, Radix launched the Startup League, a startup-centric program to encourage the use of nTLDs among new businesses. Today, the Startup League has 100+ startups on board and 50+ partners from the global startup ecosystem. Radix has also been an active supporter of hackathons around the world since 2012. As a result, more than 5000 hackathon projects have been developed on Radix domains so far. F3.space is a program specifically to engage the design community. Initiatives like these are helping Radix to create end-user visibility and usage of nTLDs.
