Nomination process

In the first phase of the nomination process, web designers submit their work through Awwwards' website for consideration for Site of the Day.[10] The work is then judged by the Awwwards community and an international jury panel composed of designers, developers, and agencies.[11] The best daily sites are also published in Awwward's year-end "The 365 Best Websites Around the World" book.[1]

In the second voting phase, the Site of the Month is chosen. Site of the Month winners proceed to the final judging phase of the competition: Site of the Year. This award is given out at the Awwwards conference and prize-giving ceremony.

Jury

The jury consists of multidisciplinary designers, developers, journalists, and agencies from across the globe.[12] The panel assesses the talent, effort, technicality, and insight that goes into the web projects submitted for consideration.[1]

Awards granted

Members of the Awwwards Jury score nominees on four separate criteria: design, creativity, usability and content. High scoring sites can win several different types of awards.

Honorable Mention

All websites awarded 6.5 or above receive an Honorable Mention.

Site of the Day

Site of the Day recognizes aesthetic, usability, and technical achievements in web design innovation. Sites remain in competition for Site of the Day for three months from the submission date. Only the highest scoring sites are awarded Site of the Day.

Developer Award

The developer's award was created in partnership with Microsoft, and it awards developers who have achieved significant web development programming mastery. "Well-developed" websites are those that are interoperable across all major browsers and operating systems, are accessible across a variety of computing devices, and employ HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS coding best-practices.[13] Developer Award winners are invited to be profiled on Internet Explorer’s Showcase, a behind-the-scenes look at what inspired the site and how it was developed.[14]
