We aim to create a meeting point where web professionals from across the world can come to find inspiration; a space for debate; a place to share knowledge and experience; give and receive constructive and respectful critiques. “Always hungry”.
Our mission is to discover, recognize, and promote the talent and effort of web designers, developers, and agencies who create unique digital experiences that are useful, innovative, intuitive, and beautiful.
At the end of every year we hold an Awwwards conference and prize-giving ceremony. This year’s event will take place in one of the most iconic cities in the world.
Recognizing the talent behind the code. The Developer Award was inspired by the amazing work behind some of the best experiences on the web that demonstrate what it means to be inclusive of all people, regardless of device or browser.
It’s no small task, whether that’s optimizing for mobile, ensuring accessibility to individuals with visual or hearing impairments, creating adaptable experiences for legacy browsers, or pushing the technological boundaries without excluding the masses, and your achievements deserve recognition.
The Developer Award is different from other awards. Focused on balancing innovative design with quality code, winners are recognized for setting the bar for the new foundation of the modern web.
Each Developer Award winner is reviewed for potential invitation to be profiled on Internet Explorer’s Rethink Showcase, a behind-the-scenes look at what inspired the project and how it was made.
Evaluation System 40% Design, 30% UX/UI, 20% Creativity and 10% Content. The Awwwards jury, along with Awwwards users, award each site a score from 1 to 10. The highest-scoring sites are awarded Site of the Day or Developer Award and are entered into the Site of the Month and Site of the Year competitions.
Status System. The aim of Awwwards is to create an online community who can bring their expertise to bear on new internet projects. We have created an online reputation system so that users who actively participate on our site by bringing their knowledge and commitment to the table can increase their reputation and as a result, gain more privileges.
A multidisciplinary jury made up of representatives from across the globe.
An expert panel formed by some of the most important designers, bloggers, and agencies in the world takes on the difficult task of assessing the talent, effort, and dedication that goes into the web projects submitted to Awwwards.
