I found this on my web travels today! It seems to be a jury-selected award for tiny not-for-profit web projects - it looks like submissions open on the 1st of July - it seems to be closed already! Maybe you have a project you'd like to send to it! I also think it's a really cool idea and Id like to see more projects like this!  :ozwomp:

Quote
Tiny Awards is a small prize awarded by an equally-small selection committee of online makers to the website which we feel best embodies the idea of a small, playful and heartfelt web.
The award will take the form of an actual, physical trophy and a small cash prize thanks to ZINE, and will almost certainly result in literally no additional accolades or fame or fortune whatsoever.

[]

Why are you doing this?
The web is big. Really, really, really big. Huge, really, if you think about it. Maybe even infinite.
Despite this vastness, though, it can often feel…oddly small. How many websites do you visit each day? How many apps? How often do you stumble across something beautiful or poignant or emotional or unexpected? Do you find yourself startled and amazed by human creativity and endeavour on a daily basis? Or, more likely, do you wearily trudge across the same landscape of urls and social icons, drinking from the algorithmically-mandated firehose without ever really feeling sated (or even, frankly, tasting anything)?
Does your online experience feel, basically, simultaneously TOO SMALL and yet TOO BIG, monolithic and lacking in magic?
Too often, it feels very much like ours does -, which is why we wanted to create something that celebrates the other web, the one that is small and handmade and isn’t trying to sell you anything or monetise anything but which instead is about people using the digital tools we all have access to to make the sorts of small, personal experiences that you tend not to see ‘in feed’.
These, then, are the inaugural (and maybe final, who knows?) Tiny Awards - a celebration of people making stuff on the internet for the fun of it and the love of it and the hell of it.

What are the criteria?
To be eligible for selection, projects must meet the following criteria:
✺ Non-commercial: projects must not be intended for commercial end; projects which feature some sort of merchandise/donation mechanic are eligible, but this must be secondary to the project’s primary scope/focus
✺ URL-based: projects must exist on their own, unique URL
✺ Desktop AND mobile: projects must work across both desktop and mobile web
✺ No apps/downloads: projects that exist as apps and/or require a download are excluded from selection
✺ No agencies or brands: individuals or groups of creators only
✺ Launched between 06/22-06/23

A melonland-ish competition would be super cool! The indie web could always use more community events! :ha:

They've announced the winner, it's Rotating Sandwiches! A concept I never knew I needed in my life, but scrolling through the page... I do feel surprisingly serene... And snacky...

They'll be back next year, is anyone thinking of making something to submit? It looks like a fun way to get creative.
I think it might be fun to make a little shrine-like site with a collection of small "displays of love", like when a friend buys you a snack or someone sends a "thinking of you" card. I love acts of love! :loved:

Oooh man, this triggered a memory. Does anyone remember sending e-cards back in the day? There were a ton of them, but you'd chose an image, input a message, and then put your friend's email address in and they'd get a little electronic greeting card of sorts. The one I remember the most was the kiss ones. They were these big cartoon lips, and you got to customize them with different designs before sending them out. It was stupid and fun.

Sorry for the derail, but to bring it back that would also be a fun idea of something to make for a tiny website!

I've been (very casually) looking for that kind of e-card site for a while now, everything I find these days either needs a paid subscription or an unbelievable amount of personal data... I'm sure some of the old ones are out there, but I agree with you, a revival or recreation of such a site would be very fun and lovely!
