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.

Sam Suresh As One Of The Panel Judges

When it comes to competition awards, judges play an important role in utilizing their expertise to fairly and carefully assess contestants effort and evaluating their work based on the rubrics and requirements set by the organizer. For this reason, the judges for this award had been chosen from several highly regarded industry experts, professional, and veterans to gain trust from the public, while offering plausible and reasonable results during the awards that take place. Sam Suresh from MU DOT MY is one of the expert judges for MWA 2019.
