The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) has launched the ?Savvy Innovations, Zesty Exchange (Size) Matters? website development competition, which will run from August 4 to September 15, 2014.
?Size Matters? is an online showcase of innovative ideas and practices of the DSWD, which aims to ?reinvent the things we do and the way we do things.?
Participants may fill out entry forms which can be downloaded at facebook/osm.dswd and osm.dswd.gov.ph. Deadline of submission of entries is on September 15, 2014. Mechanics of the contest can be viewed also at the site.
The winning website design will be launched and will serve as a platform where one can discuss and develop progressive proposals and practices. The site aims to enhance peer participation and encourage convergence and sharing of ideas.
Once established, the site can evolve into a long-term open platform for mass collaboration to tap knowledge from outside to find solutions to current and emerging demands and challenges of the department, particularly on good governance and social protection.
