The judges were uniformly impressed by Alzheimer's Research UK's Dementia Lab, praising the comprehensive campaign for its engaging, easy to use design. On the site, visitors are guided through a virtual, interactive lab which explains each stage of dementia research and the work of the charity. It can be accessed online or through a DVD for those without internet, and uses social media to engage younger audiences.

Judges' comments:

An amazing site, both in its design and content.

Made me think more than I ever have about dementia.
