Who are the Judges:
All Golden Web Awards are provided through the International Association of Webmaster and Designers. The judges consist of our V.V.C. (Voluntary Voting Committee). This voting committee was designed to be comprised of I.A.W.M.D. members who volunteer their time to visit and score the websites submitted for the award.

Requirements to Win:
The websites submitted are judged and scored in three primary categories: design, content and originality. Each category may receive a score of between 1 and 10. Up to three V.V.C. members may score a particular website. The scores from each V.V.C. member are totaled--30 being a perfect score. These scores are then added together and averaged for a final score. Note: Although we are not yet set up to record and provide individual scoring, winning the award requires a total score of between 24 and 30.

Becoming a Judge:
All professional members of the association are eligible to sign up for the Voluntary Voting Committee. Interested members may do so by visiting: Please have your membership number on hand, as it will be required to submit your request.

Benefits of Winning:
The benefits of winning are simple. Only the best sites are voted to receive the Golden Web Award. The criteria for winning remains a challenge to even the best webmasters, artists and designers. That being said, the primary benefit of the Golden Web Award is the recognition of your commitment to the pursuit of website excellence. Further, it represents that your work is considered an outstanding website, incorporating high standards of design, originality and content. Most importantly, the Golden Web Award lets others know you're viewed as a respected professional by your peers, one who is deserving of recognition.

Who's Who Recognition:
All Golden Web Award winners who chose to be listed in the Association's "Who's Who on the Web" Directory will have their award achievement displayed on their listing. Listing in the Who's Who is free by visiting:

Listings requested by I.A.W.M.D. will automatically be upgraded to a preferred listing status at no charge. This preferred listing will also feature their membership status in the association.

Public Relations and the Press:
Many of the Golden Web Award winners often call us regarding what information they can use and/or provide the press. The answer: all of it! We are more than happy to have you use any of the information we have provided you, in whole or in part, for your personal posting, public relations needs and/or press release distribution.
