CODiE Awards Judges: A Conversation with the Coordinator
Wed, 31 Oct 2012 19:59
Nominations have closed for the 2013 CODiE Awards, and I am definitely excited about the variety and caliber of products in this year’s program. I know our judges are looking forward to reviewing the products as well. Our first round review is the core of the CODiE Awards. It is also the portion of the program that gives me the most interaction with the judges and nominees. I am constantly in contact with both groups, ensuring that everyone has a great experience.
What is the first round review?
For the first round review, two judges review each product in each category. For example, products nominated in two categories will be assigned four judges. During this first round, judges participate in product demonstration s given by the nominees. Two options are available for the products demonstrations:
– Live product demonstration: Nominations walk through their product webinar-style with the judges participating as they do the walk-through
– Recorded product demonstration: Nominees may already have a video product demo that can be sent to the judges to watch.
We recommend that the nominees keep the demos to under an hour. If it is a live demo, remember to leave time for Q&A with the judges.
The first round review also includes product access. It’s beneficial for the judges to get a feel for the product on their own, as a supplement to the guided demo. Product access can happen in several forms, including temporary online login information or by sending the physical product to the judge.
I also suggest sending as much additional information as you would like to the judges. This can be additional links to PDF’s, videos, news releases, etc.
Who are the judges?
We take great care in selecting the industry experts who volunteer as judges. Each division reviews every judge application to determine if he/she is qualified. We want to ensure there are no conflicts of interest.
For our software and content categories, the judges consist of industry executives and analysts, members of the media, bloggers, investors, and even some customers.
For our education categories, we use educators and administrators as our judges. They are the users of these products and can best determine what products may work the best in their classrooms.
Judging is a great experience because it gives the customers a chance to review the products and provide feedback that the companies can use to make improvements.
How can you help?
We are still looking for judges in several of our categories in Content, Software, and Education. If you are interested in judging or can recommend a colleague please complete our brief judge application.
