Christchurch Art Gallery website scoops major museums award

Christchurch Art Gallery website scoops major museums award
May 21, 2016

Christchurch Art Gallery's new website has taken top honours at the 2016 Museums Australasia Multimedia and Publication Design Awards (MAPDAs).

The prestigious annual awards celebrate excellence in the Australasian museums sector and were presented at the combined Museums Aotearoa and Museums Australia conference held in Auckland this week.

The Gallery was awarded both best-in-show (Digital category) and excellence (Multimedia category) for its website, which was recently redesigned by Christchurch firm Sons & Co. The Gallery was also again highly commended by judges for its multi-award-winning magazine, Bulletin.

The latest accolades add to the Gallery's long-running record of success at the MAPDAs. It has won a total of 12 excellence awards since 2004.

Gallery Director Jenny Harper said the win validates the fresh and innovative approach taken to the website for the Gallery's reopening, commenting “we're very pleased to see the website recognised. It's a very new approach for us, treating the site more like a dynamic online magazine than a standard institutional website.

"More than ever it has become an extension of the Gallery – a place with its own authority, voice and both curatorial and editorial style.

"It's been extremely positively received since its reveal around our reopening, and there are more updates to come.”
