Prix Italia Winners

Winners announced at Prix Italia this afternoon. Dutch had three winners, including the Kassa website from the VARA which has built the consumer website that the Dutch Conumer Association SHOULD have built. Wierd thing is that RAI is going to do the whole ceremony again this evening infront of the cameras, so winners had to give their awards back to go through the same things again. Standards though are high...the jurors really do take this prize giving seriously - unlike the New York Festivals which are simply a cash cow.

Its a shame that Dutch public broadcasting cannot build an international portal to show what innovation it has developed domestically. The technology behind the kassa site is well ahead of other public broadcasters, but you wouldn't know.
