What is the WebCup? WebCup

The Webcup is an annual event that was first introduced in December 2009 by the Webcup Association (non-profit) based in Reunion Island, with the aim of promoting the use of the Internet around a fun and educational event; an annual competition known as The Webcup .  Since the Internet is a world-wide web of a multitude of websites, this event gives the opportunity for both amateurs (students) and professionals (individuals and web agencies) to participate in the creation of websites based on a common theme.  The participants must within 24 hours develop a website on a topic kept secret and revealed only at the start of the competition.  The participants are free to use any technology they wish and after 24 hours, a jury shall deliberate and nominate a winner.

 

Who is the WebCup ?  The WebCup Association was created by Fabien Degieux (Chairman),  Alan Chakri (Vice-President and Secretary) and Thomas Craipeau (Treasurer). The Association is supported by active volunteers, « The Staff » without which WebCup would not have been possible. In total there is a dozen people actively involved in the preparation of each new edition.

VCS (Pty) Limited, the Administrator and Technical Registry of the .SC Domain Names for Seychelles in partnership with the WebCup Association of La Reunion and local sponsors is introducing the WebCup event in Seychelles.
