  • Hi,

    What will the emails be judged on? Purely the design? Or will they be judged on things we have to deal with on a day-to-day basis as email marketers such as prominent CTA’s, cross email-provider reliability, best practices, etc?


  • HannaAndrzejewska

    Hi Alex,
    yes the jury will judge all aspects of a good design: creativity, organization, communication, consistency and style – this also includes the integral email design elements such as layout, CTA and others and how they are balanced. You will find more information on judging criteria here:
