How We Pick the Winners

 

The XR industry nominates products and solutions in one of ten active categories, all of which are listed below.

All nominations must adhere to the Auggie Awards Rules and Regulations to be eligible for an award.

Selected nominees move forward to public voting. 

The public is asked to vote for the nominees they wish to see as finalists in each category.

Public Voting results are used to select the five finalists in each of the 10 active Auggie Award categories. The judging panel will have the opportunity to “save” some nominations they wish to see included as a finalist. 

These finalists move to the judging round which occurs from May 18-May 25.

Our panel of judges (listed below) rate the finalists and these ratings will determine the winners for each category. 

The winners will be announced on stage at AWE USA 2018 on May 31, 2018.
