Brief Summary

Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan is dedicated to ensuring every child receives a quality education. Through advocacy, teacher training, technology, and more, Her Majesty works to increase access and raise standards in education in Jordan and around the world. Queen Rania is also committed to community empowerment and sustainable development. Queen Rania’s official website is home to all of Her Majesty’s work, including press coverage, photos, videos, and initiatives. QueenRania.jo is also a space for fans to connect with Her Majesty, interact with each other, and support Queen Rania’s work. The purpose of the website is to promote Her Majesty and her mission. The purpose of this competition is to replace the current website’s flash entrance module with a fully functional, non-flash home page that provides easier access to the rest of the website. In addition, we want to increase users’ time on the site by showing relevant pages and/or news items alongside the main content on each page.  The website is in both English and Arabic. The competition is to provide graphic design and art work for the English side of the website only. However, entrants should take into consideration that their work must be compatible right-to-left as well as left-to-right. A link to the Arabic side of the site should therefore also be included in the design.
