Round One: The Shortlist for the Awwwards Jury 2018

Article by Awwwards Team in News - January 04

We were bowled over by the massive quantity of designers and developers willing and ready to offer their opinions and knowledge to critique the stream of sites presented to us every day. Due to the extreme interest, we've closed the process early in order to have enough time consider each candidate on a case-by-case basis.

Thanks to everyone who took part, a big pat on the back to those of you who have made it through to the next round, you'll receive an email detailing the next steps. Remember this is a list of the brand new Jury members, not the complete list, if you were in the 2017 Jury you will be contacted shortly regarding your status.
