Best User Experience

We’re looking for websites that have clearly understood the audience and where a lot of thought has gone into creating the user journey.

Judges will be hoping to see websites that load quickly with elegant, efficient and consistent navigation so users can find relevant content quickly and easily. The website should work equally well on any device – desktop, laptop, smartphone, or tablet.

This category is particularly relevant for websites that have had additions and improvements in the last 12 months.
