How Entries are Scored

How Entries are Scored

Our aim is to provide a robust and transparent judging process that provides clarity and confidence to all involved. Entries are scored using predetermined criteria. These criteria are used to generate the shortlist of finalists.

Judging panels will then score both written entries and live presentations. Winners from each category are identified based on the highest score and the "Overall Digital Experience Awards Winner 2017" is given to the sector or discipline entry with the highest overall score.

After the awards finals, your scores and feedback from your udging panel will be collated to produce a benchmarked feedback report. This will reveal how the judges scored your entry and how these scores compared to the other finalists in your category. It will also detail all of the comments provided by the judges based upon both your written entry and live presentations.



There are a standard set of 7 criteria across all of the categories. Each criterion has 100 marks available.

All 7 criteria will be used for both the shortlisting of finalists and for scoring written entries by the judging panel. Finalist presentations will be scored against criteria 2-7 only.
