Judging is completed yearly by an all volunteer jury that varries in size and composition from season to season. We accept judges from all levels of the interactive media industry and other related fields, making it a panel of your peers. In addition, end-users and non-designers are accepted to the judging panel which 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!
We accept applications for our judging panel at any time. Please send your background information to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
