The competition was judged by a team of independent Internet professionals representing a variety of relevant disciplines of Web site development.

If the remaining entries receive a score of 60 or greater, they receive the Outstanding Web site award. Entries that score higher than their industry average and below 59.9 receive the Standard of Excellence.

The 2023 WebAwards are sponsored by the following leading organizations:, WMR.FM eTail Conferences, and iContact.
