Judging Process

Establishing Site Award Winners

Site Award nominees and winners are selected by voting members of the American Web Design Academy from the best work entered through the Call for Entries form below. Evaluated against a number of criteria, these websites undergo a rigorous voting process in consideration of winning a Site Award.

How Websites are Judged

Voting Members of the Academy independently review the entries submitted for consideration of a Site Award, rating each one based on its respective judging criteria. Every entry is evaluated by multiple Associate Academy Members. The top entries are then included on category-specific shortlists and further evaluated by Executive Members of the Academy.
