Recognition and Prestige for Digital Thinkers

Every year our international jury, formed of world-renowned designers and developers, select the most outstanding projects of the last 12 months to be celebrated as the best sites of the year.

The prizes are awarded by both the Awwwards Jury and Users as a way for the industry to give recognition to the digital creatives, studios and agencies whose projects use groundbreaking technology and creativity to change the face of the web.
