Hey, I'd love it if you guys would review this site I did. It was for a competition, but is actually used by my towns festival organization now too.

heres the link:

In the site I made it so users can do applications online, please do not submit any of the forms.
I dont want you guys to spam the people that check the forms.

Please give me your best critiques.

Thank You :)

Looking good, i like all of the colors and the layout is pretty good, standard, but its easy to manage.

i would keep on eye out on this though

validate errors (http://validator.w3.org/check?verbose=1&uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.springartsfestival.org%2F)

I love the colour scheme and the overall design. I especially like the menus. It looks easy to navigate, and simple. Although it's not valid, it's still pretty cool!

Looks good:

Nice layout/design/color scheme
Easy to navigate

On the home page I would add a little more space between the headers and the content & photos
Indent the content under the headers to the right by about 5-10 pixels
On the top menu you have to click on the menus to see the sub menus - I would make the sub menu appear as a roll over.
On the side menu I change the CSS to display the links as Blocks so the roll over cover the whole width of the menu area

- Doesn't validate
- Good: External links open in new windows
- I would prefer that if you hover over the menu item the submenu comes up, not a click
- Good: Your headers use an image background, not an entire image, great!

- Looks good
- There is a tiling background image that is hardly ever visible, I would remove that

Too many gradients. Im not a lover of gradients :O(
There should be, on mouse hover, the links on the navigation, not just when clicked.
It is very restricting. I think you should use rounded edges on your banner. :O)

Is there need for a .php page? Is there any PHP on the page? Could speed up loading time. As it took ages to load.

Hope this helps. :O)
