GUIDELINES & ELIGIBILITY

Web Excellence Awards competition is open to all organizations and individuals involved in the process of developing web sites, digital media content, marketing and advertisement campaigns, social media projects, or so on. The projects that have entered in past Web Excellence Awards competitions are still eligible for the current competition. Also, there is no limit to the number of entries you may submit or the number of categories you may enter. Submitting your entry in multiple categories may increase your chances of being awarded for your project. The person submitting the entry will be considered as the contact person of the project and will receive all communications regarding the Web Excellence Awards competition. All changes to an entry can only be made by the contact person. Entries received will be subject to review and those submissions determined inappropriate or to be of a discriminatory and offensive nature will be disqualified with no refund of fees.
