To ensure accuracy and avoid interference or influence on our part , scores from quarter final to final winners will be sent directly by judges thru our Bubuawards Judging Engine to the official tabulators, Ernst and Young. They will verify and tabulate the scores.
Judging will be based on the following criteria:

  • Content – Content is information conveyed and provided through the Internet medium. Good content should be engaging, relevant, and appropriate for the target audience of the website. A well rounded web designer should also know how to provide this element for their clients.
  • Page Layout – Placement of graphics, text and buttons to provide an intricate visual tapestry are factors resulting in good page layout. Good positioning and arrangement suited to the target audience will provide a seamless integration between information, graphics, navigational system and other components of the site.
  • Graphic Design – The art factor of the site will be reviewed through this criterion. Mastery of the various graphic softwares is a fundamental requirement for success in the world of web development. Graphics will have to be clear, meaningful, and fit into the overall puzzle called the website.
  • Navigation System – A good navigation system will provide a clear and unconstrained movement from one page to the other. Providing a good roadmap for the users to find the right information easily.
  • Functionality – The ability to utilize the appropriate technology on a website is what we meant by functionality. Speed of information access is a big factor in Asian countries with limited bandwidth availability, thus live links, download time, cross platform, and browser independent are highlighted for this criterion.
  • Overall Feel – This is the X Factor that make or break a website. A good web designer will have his or her own signature transparently embedded in his work that will show through to their audience. Experience, hard work and endless experimentation will allow a web designer to tap their own X Factor that would fascinate people.

Congratulation for all finalists. I am not sure about how many participants there. For me, I think I am lucky enough to be one of the finalists.

My participating websites?

Well, I am not sure about my site. Personally, I do proud of becoming one of the finalists. Besides the full-flash websites (Mas Gigih, nice!), I am alone there. I mean, I am the only one who uses CSS to handle the layout. Yeah, yeah, yeah… I do not want to put this into a debate. Period. Browse all sites, and have your own opinion. Fair enough, right?
Well, anyone wants to make a review about each websites? I heard that someone is going to make a review about this event. I think I just wait and see.
I think I have to stop here. The event is still running. As parcitipant, I think I just need to wait and see.
