How it Works

The CODiE Awards are judged in two phases:  

First Round Expert Review: Judge Evaluations 

  • Product Demonstrations to Two Expert Reviewers
    February 23, 2018-April 20, 2018

  • Determines Finalists (and 80% of overall score)
    In the first round review, each product is assigned two judges for evaluation against specific judging criteria (see categories for criteria by category). This round determines the finalists. First round CODiE Awards judges include industry executives and analysts, representatives of media outlets, bloggers, investors, and, for the education categories, educators and administrators. If you are interested in participating as a CODiE Award judge, please complete our application.

  • Selection of the Finalists
    The number of finalists in each category is determined by the number of nominations in each category: 
    • 3 total nominations in a category = 2 finalists
    • 4-5 total nominations in a category = 3 finalists
    • 6-10 total nominations in a category = 4 finalists
    • 11-15 total nominations in a category = 5 finalists
    • 16-20 total nominations in a category = 6 finalists
    • 21-25 total nominations in a category = 7 finalists
    • 26-30 total nominations in a category = 8 finalists
    • 31-35 total nominations in a category = 9 finalists
    • 36-40 total nominations in a category = 10 finalists

Second Round Peer Review: SIIA Member Voting 

  • May 7, 2018 – May 25, 2018
  • Members vote on top products 
  • Determines Winners (accounts for 20% of final score)
  • In the second round of review SIIA members vote on the finalist products, and the scores of both rounds are combined to determine the winners. Become an SIIA member.
