The awards featured in MWA  revolves around major three awards, namely Site Of The Month Awards, Favourite Website,  and the grand prize, the Site Of The Year Awards. In contrast to the Site Of The Year Awards and Site Of The Month Awards mentioned earlier, which the winner is determined based on the judge’s evaluation, the winner of the Favourite Website Awards is decided mostly by public vote. Regardless of which, contestants still participate and compete for these awards according to their categories, namely Commercial, Personal and E-Commerce.

As for The Malaysia Website Award (MWA) 2019, this programme is focusing mainly on handing over Site Of The Year and Site Of The Month awards, trophies and certificates to all the winners.
