We seek to build an interactive, mobile-friendly and multi-lingual website in two months that will allow users to register for a Dance Parade in their country. Each city should have administrative access to view and edit the data in a relational database such as Google Sheets.
The overarching aim of this project is to create a visually attractive yet trustworthy website to dancers and potential funders with user friendly and efficient navigation. The content management system needs to be built in a way that local cities and non-technical staff can update logos and other parade year specific data. As a non-profit website, credibility is key and it is imperative that the site be representative of “clean and clear” information.
The website needs to allow for parade registration of groups and individual dancers, including eCommerce to pay the Group Registration fees. Then in addition to that, there should be an easy way to disseminate or distribute the form entries out to preferred services one of which could be Google Sheets, which is easy to share with multiple staff members.
It is anticipated that the first phase of site development will entail design and layout of the homepage and overall site design. The second phase will allow parade registration in New York City and the third phase will be complete with an instruction guide to train staff.

Followup Q&A from the Bidder’s Conference 10/27/17:
1. What type of website designs do you like?
We are interested to have a full screen, mobile friendly responsive design. We like the parallax scrolling effect and want to utilize our vibrant content. A list of our content assets is here.
Some examples of the websites we like are:
2. For launch, how many languages do you want/need?
We expect to allocate between $1000 and $5000 depending on the quality of the winning proposal. We anticipate that if the site is indeed set up to be copied to subdomains for uses in other cities, then there will be a franchise fee charged to the other cities. It’s quite possible that the developer would be able to get part of that fee which would go toward helping to set up the franchise city.
