Each entry was judged by at least three expert judges. The judges were not told the category to which a website has been entered, nor were they told who submitted the entry. The only information given to the judges included the website URL, the mission statement and the prospective audience.
Entries were scored on a scale of 0-10 points in seven levels of criteria including Design, Innovation, Content, Technology, Interactivity, Copywriting, and Ease of Use. Global Reach received an overall score of 62 points, including a 9.5 rating for Ease of Use, and 9.0 ratings for Innovation, Content, Technology, and Copywriting. Global Reach’s ratings were well above the industry average which was 54 points, as well as the WebAward average which was 54.3 points.
One of the judge’s comments stated, “An excellent website using proper colors, images, video and text for the overall user experience. Well done!”
