For the third year in a row, the West Kowloon website received a Silver Award in the non-commercial category of the Best .hk Website Awards for outstanding performance. Organised by the Hong Kong Internet Registration Corporation Limited (HKIRC), the Best .hk Website Awards aims to encourage the use of best practices and design in website development. The award presentations, which took place on 20 April, are one of the signature events of Hong Kong’s annual International IT Fest.

Our website, www.westkowloon.hk, continues to be an important channel for communication. It plays an integral role in keeping the public up to date with the district’s latest programmes and developments, and is the destination site for over 100,000 e-subscribers and many social media users. It is also the main promotional platform for M+ programmes and the district’s performing arts events; an online display of works in the M+ collection; the source of updates on construction progress; and the online resource on our governance, project master plan, tenders and recruitment. Created to international standards, our responsive, accessible website is supported by a versatile content management system designed to grow with the project. West Kowloon will continue to explore innovative ways to reach new audiences using cutting-edge digital technology.
