Gallery site nets award

The Dunedin Public Art Gallery has won an international award for its website.

The gallery won the website design category at the Museums Australia Multimedia and Publication Design Awards at the Museums Australia National Conference in Canberra on Sunday. The gallery was also highly commended for the invitation design to its Sound Full exhibition.

''It was great to have all our hard work on the gallery website project acknowledged in this way,'' gallery graphic designer Karina McLeod said yesterday.

The annual awards are for New Zealand and Australia galleries and museums.

''I'm very pleased that the Dunedin Public Art Gallery's excellence in design, both graphic and digital, has been recognised and celebrated on the international stage,'' gallery commercial development manager Tim Pollock said yesterday.

''This win in the web design section against some major institutions with impressive budgets to commit to their projects is a significant achievement.''

The gallery has a history of success in the awards. It won the exhibition excellence category last year for Still Life: The Art of Anatomy and the exhibition catalogue category in 2011 for Wayne Barrar: An Expanding Subterra as well as the calendar and information brochure category for three issues of its publication LOG.
