First Round Expert Review: Judge Evaluations & Selection of Finalists

Product Demonstrations to Two Expert Reviewers
Feb 15 – April 16, 2021
Determines Finalists (and 80% of overall score)

In the first-round review, all nominated products receive a detailed review by two expert judges. First round CODiE Awards judges include industry executives and analysts, representatives of media outlets, bloggers, investors, and, for the education categories, educators and administrators. 

Each product is judged against category specific criteria so that the best products rise to the top, and top rated products from the first round of review are elevated to finalists.

Once the first-round expert review is complete, all nominees receive detailed feedback from their judges that can be used in marketing, promotions and to help guide future product development.

Tip for Nominees

During the first round review you will need to schedule a one-hour demo with each of your judges (you’ll be assigned two judges per category). Make sure to reach out to judges immediately to get the demos on the calendar ASAP, especially if you are nominating in several categories.
