A digital transformation of the nomination, application, judging and administration of the annual WIT Awards.
Awards & Judging Platform
The key objective of the project was to digitally transform the nomination, application and judging processes from a paper based approach. The new platform needed to be simple and easy to use, with robust security and an administrative back end that could be used to fully administer the awards without technical assistance.
A responsive Drupal CMS website was built allowing public users to nominate and apply for awards. Online judging of the awards across two judging rounds includes calculation of applicant score and finalists. Email notifications are sent regarding nominations, interview times and results. An administrative dashboard facilitates review of judging, and provides the ability to search, export or print applications, contact data, or results.
The platform significantly reduced staff resources required to administer the awards. The award nomination and application process was not only substantially more user friendly, but seamlessly manageable.
