Kiwi websites recognised at SXSW Web Awards

Fat Freddy's, Shapeshifter and Splore websites in list of five finalists

A technology conference may seem an unlikely place for Kiwi musicians to excel, but at SXSW, in Austin, Texas, the websites of two Kiwi bands and a local music festival were recognised among five finalists in the conference's web awards.

While the Echo & the Bunnymen site won the category, Fat Freddy's TV, Shapeshifter and the Splore website were finalists alongside the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame - Rock Immortal site.

The award category covered sites related to musicians, bands and the music industry, online radio and destinations offering streaming audio content.

Wellington-based Flash specialists Resn built both the Shapeshifter and Fat Freddy's TV sites, while Salted Herring built Splore.

The answer engine Wolfram Alpha won best in the show.
