The Belmont University website homepage is one of three finalists for EduStyle.net’s “Best Use of Photography” award.
Anyone can vote by online by signing up for a free membership to the website. Voting ends July 15. The winner will receive a trophy when announced Aug. 2 at the eduWeb Conference, an annual event for people who work in online strategy, marketing and technology at colleges and universities across the globe.
“When our in-house team began the redesign, we really wanted to make belmont.edu match the unique, innovative spirit that exists in our students, faculty & staff. We hope that spirit & sense of place is front and center when people visit belmont.edu,” said Creative Services Supervisor April Maglothin.
“We knew we were taking a chance with this design because it steers away from the typical grid for higher education homepages. However, the photography was a priority for us because it isn’t just a design element, it has the ability to tell a unique story. We challenged ourselves to create a streamlined yet functional, narrative site. We’re proud of the end result and hope the Belmont community is as well.”
EduStyle.net allows its members to post comments on and rate other higher education websites.
