Judging Criteria

It doesn’t matter what your experience level, where you’re based, or even who you work for, this award system is judged specifically on four main criteria:

Results Results are not necessarily financially based – a great result for many digital platforms is an enthusiastic end user response, repeat visits and the level of interaction the work receives with its desired audience.

Design Judging aesthetics and ease of use. For some categories this will include form and function for others it will be based on the relevant use of content.

Interaction Interactive elements are what separate digital from traditional media. Their inclusion should make it clear that you can now connect and interact with the content you are consuming.

Innovation What makes your product or invention a step above your competitors? What do you offer consumers that no one else has even thought of yet? How are you assisting the evolution of the digital space?
