Awards & Judging : 

A Different Approach to Judging…

Because we accept judges from all levels of the interactive media industry and other related fields, it truly is a panel of your peers. These are people that live and work in the industry on a daily basis. No group “think tanks” here… just real creative and qualified people. In addition, end-users and non-designers are also part of the judges panel. This offers a unique perspective not found at any other awards competition. We feel that solutions should be effective… not just fun to look at. Think of it like your own personal focus group!

Judging Criteria

Each entry will be judged on the following:  solution creativity and originality, overall graphic design / appearance / user experience, communication of message, technical merit, and the effectiveness of solution
