MWA 2017 – The Judging Process

In the last blog post, we’ve mentioned about the steps you need to take when submitting your website to us. If you haven’t read about it, you can go HERE to have a look on those steps.

Today, we would like to share on the judging process, as we often receive questions from the participants, such as “why I can’t see my website on nominees list?”

No worries, we will explain to you later on—for now, keep reading!

Phase 1:

After you’ve submitted your website to us, you shall receive an email from us that indicate you that we’ve received your submission. Take note that it doesn’t indicate that your website is approved and listed in the Nominees List

Do check out the email sample as below:

Phase 2:

Our internal judges will proceed to check out the websites and judge based on the criteria, which includes design, SEO, accessibility, performance  and content.

Phase 3:

After the MWA Internal Judges have done evaluating the websites, our team will proceed to upload nominees’ website screenshots and profiles on the MWA official website. The team will usually take 2 weeks time of the following month to upload.

Getting confused? No worries, we’re going to give you an example for a clearer picture.

For eg, if you submit your website during March, you will be one of the nominees of March (If you’re selected by the internal judges). Therefore, your website will be displayed on the MWA official website on early April.

“Why can’t I see my website display on nominees list?”—the explanation earlier should be sufficient to answer this enquiry.

Phase 4:

Once the team has uploaded all the website screenshots and profiles, the nominees will receive an email notification on their website’s approval and listing on the “Nomination List”

Take a look at the email notification:

Do take note that the websites will be listed chronologically based on their time of entry.

Phase 5

You can also embed your designated website link (URL) and Share it to your friends to ask for votes!

We hope this blog post gives you a clearer picture on the judging system. If you still have any question, please do not hesitate to drop us a line at marketing@exabytes.my
