Recognition is the Greatest Motivator

PWA welcomes submissions from all websites which stand out in their looks, or the service quality of their business, adherence to ethics, and their unfailing commitment to serve humanity. Such websites are and should be popular and they are what our judges look for. The greatest award is when you do the work you love to do, and PWA finds and recognizes such hidden gems.

Step 1

Nominees are gained via our online nomination form from various ways including online visitors, social media following, clients and our wider circulation.

Those putting forward nominees are welcome to nominate their own firm or colleagues within their firm as well as third party businesses.

Step 2

All those who formally accept their nomination will be asked if they would like to submit material for further consideration as supporting evidence.

We consider materials supplied by nominees, information on those nominated businesses available online and any information supplied with the original nomination.

Step 3

Our team gathers information independently from a number of publicly available sources, we then assess the material supplied by the nominees and by those who put them forward originally.

We will cast our final judgment based on various criteria including client dedication, innovation, business growth, longevity, online reputation, client feedback and business performance.

Step 4

Once winners have been determined each winner will be contacted directly.

Details of those winners will be embargoed until PWA formally announce the winners publicly via the website and award winners' magazine.

Step 5

We encourage all of our winners to publicly announce their win independently.

Announcements via company websites, social media channels, via publicly released press releases, and through local and national press are a great way of really maximising the exposure gained from such an amazing achievement.
