Awarding “Online Website Creation” Competition
On March 10, 2007, at Ho Chi Minh City, the Organization Board (OB) of “Online Website Creation” Competition summarized and awarded the first prize for Vietnamese Youth Volunteer (VYV) Social Organization; second for History Class, class 48 of National University of Ha Noi; third for Tan Phat Company; and 5 consolation prizes for Nguyen Huu Canh Technical – Professional School, Tran Ngoc Hai Dang, etc.
The OB informed that there were 894 contestants with nearly 1.500 websites created. However, Mr. Truong Van Quy, director of EQ Technological and Communicational Development Joint-stock Company, on behalf of the OB, said, “There are only 50 websites reaching the average or above quality standard.” This shows that besides skilled technology users, there are many other people getting troubles with technology and unable to take full advantage of handy tools to build websites. “According to the 4 major issues of making online websites – tools/technology, line bandwidth, IT knowledge/skills of the applicants, and supporting ability of providers, Vietnam has 1 difficulty (users’ skills), 1 advantage (providers’ ability to support and rectify the errors caused by the applicant’s operations), and 2 issues equivalent to those of other countries’ systems.”, Mr. Quy said.
The average number of accesses to the competition’s website http://www.eqvn.net is 16.610 per month. However, “there are websites created by the competitors even get greater numbers of accesses.” Mr. Quy informed, “To promote the ability of attracting Internet users, EQ will deploy online event organizing service. Organizing events online has many benefits, such as deploying fast, transmitting information quickly, being able to mobilize many people in a short time.” Mr. Quy said that when presenting this idea, EQ received the approval from public relations companies.
Le Van Loi from Hope – NT Company, leader of South branch, representative of VYV to receive the first prize for the website http://nvt.eqvn.net/, said, “The designer of this website is Truong Vinh Binh from Ha Noi. VYV, formerly active at http://forum.olympiavn.org, is a voluntary organization founded by excandidates of VTV3 Channel’s “Way to the Olympia peak” Competition, which is sponsored by LG. VYV’s goal is to exchange knowledge, do social activities with the slogan “Together we sow the Vietnamese seeds”.
It was said that VYV decided to use 15 million VND of the prize to update website http://nvt.eqvn.net/, keep it alive for 1 year (10 million VND) and hand in the rest of 5 million VND to its fund. Another winner, Tran Ngoc Hai Dang, who won the consolation prize, said, “It’s unbelievable that a student like me could create such a professional website as this...” Hai Dang told that he would change his website’s purpose from personal blog to another way of servicing the community for the society.
