Knocking down barriers

Eurobuild CEE 21 September 2018
Knocking down barriers
Three competitions are to be held to support the disabled
POLAND The Friends of Integracja association is holding three public competitions to promote both access for the disabled and computer applications to improve their lives: Application without Barriers, Website without Barriers and Warsaw Project without Barriers.

The two IT competitions are to find a mobile app and a website that would ease the lives of those with disabilities. The entrants are to be judged on their user-friendliness, innovation and above all their usefulness and their compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. In 2017 The prize for the best mobile app went to the ABA DrOmnibus educational app for children with autism, which impressed the Jury with its integrated therapy. The award for the best computer concept went to Hachi and ParrotOne – a predictive text application that uses machine learning to help those with physical disabilities. The Warsaw Project without Barriers competition will award prizes in four categories for making the capital more accessible to the disabled.

The categories are:

Local Authority (district),

Public Building

Residential/Office/Retail Building

Historic renovation.

“With these competition, we can show people with disabilities what spaces are accessible to them. The prizes will go to organisations that think about access in a responsible and comprehensive way,” says Piotr Pawłowski, the president of the Integration foundation. The deadline for entries is October10th, 2018. The prizes will be awarded in November during the 23rd Great Gala of Integration in the Ursynów Arena in Warsaw. The competitions are partly funded by the City of Warsaw and the patrons include ‘Eurobuild CEE’, GoMobi.pl, the Institute for Higher Education Development, Komputer Świat and the Niepelnosprawni.pl portal.
