Averaging 300,000 hits a week, it is the current NUS Student Website of the Year, having also won the award in 2001, 2002, 2003, and 2005, despite only being founded in 2000. This means that with the exception of just one year, Durham21 has won the Website of the Year award every year of its existence.


Completely independent and financed entirely by its own fundraising and advertising (with any proceeds going to local charities), d21 is led by a team of editors who manage and contribute to their own sections of the website while encouraging contributions from any student in Durham. Indeed, it has recently opened the door for people outside of the University of Durham to contribute as it aims to diversify the scope of opinion it carries. Durham University is a university in England. ...


The aim of d21 is to combine all the recognisable features of a print newspaper, such as the latest news, views, music, arts and reviews, whilst also exploiting the internet medium to bring such things as a virtual tour of Durham, webcasting of Durham's student radio station Purple, a fully-searchable listings system, web polls and an interactive comments system.

Accolades

Winning the best website for five of the last six years, Durham21 has received considerable praise. In 2003 the site was labelled by judges “the complete package” and has since been praised for its “clear and consistent navigation, enjoyable and timely features.” Donald Macintyre, chief political commentator from The Independent went as far as to say d21 “explored the unique possibilities of the web, rather than simply ‘hosting’ their union’s newspaper or magazine.” When d21’s Laura Swinton won the best Student Critic Award in 2006, the judge’s comments on her reflected the unique style of d21, saying she “displayed a fluent, confident and witty style that made her work really stand out.” For other uses, see The Independent (disambiguation). ...
