Introduction to Christ-Centered Awards


Nominate your Christian website for one of our five elite Christian website awards known as the Christ-Centered Awards.

Gold Christ-Centered Award
 Blue Award

 Green Award

 Bronze Award

 Silver Award

 Gold Award

The purpose of our awards is to recognize outstanding website achievement and provide much-needed encouragement to website designers as they continue to strive for excellence in proclaiming the uncompromised gospel of Jesus Christ on the Internet.

Judging Criteria

Our judging criteria is extremely rigorous and a challenge to even elite web page designers.

In order to win one of our top awards (Bronze, Silver, and Gold), one must have an exemplary website which reflects only the highest standards of excellence.

Please don't be discouraged if you do not receive one of our top awards or receive an award not to your liking. Remember, you are promoting the gospel of Jesus Christ and that in itself is the greatest reward!

Websites are evaluated using a 100 point scoring system, and stars are awarded according to the total score received.

We review sites based on the following five criteria: originality, functionality, design, content, and professionalism.

Originality (/20)

Your site will be judged for creativity, distinctiveness, innovation, technology, and vision. Our judges will be looking for the following:
  1. A website that is original, creative, elegant, and sophisticated.

  2. A website that is so unique that it evokes an emotional response and leaves a lasting impression.

  3. A website that is cutting edge and offers clever, forward-thinking solutions.

  4. A website that uses advanced programming technology such as Active X, CGI scripts, CSS, and JavaScript as well as streaming media such as RealPlayer, RealVideo, and Flash Player.

  5. A website that has the necessary framework for growth and expansion.
Functionality (/15)

Your site will be judged for accessibility, HTML quality, legality, navigation ability, and sensitivity to bandwidth and speed. Our judges will be looking for the following:
  1. A website that is compatible with all 4 major browsers (Microsoft Explorer, Mozilla, Netscape, and Opera) and can reach a universal audience with multilingual translations.

  2. A website that contains clean HTML code, browser compliant Javascript, and effective titles and meta tags.

  3. A website that only contains legal content or activities and does not infringe upon international copyright laws. All artwork, intellectual property, music, and quotations which are not original must be cited appropriately.

  4. A website that maintains link integrity, is easy to navigate, and contains quality Christian links.

  5. A website that contains above average download times and keeps page lengths at a reasonable level.
Design (/30)

Your site will be judged for aesthetics, graphic design, integration, layout, and user friendliness. Our judges will be looking for the following:

  3. A website that has a unified feel and a reinforced purpose throughout.

  3. A website that provides at least 2 of the following features: a chat room, guestbook, newsgroup, newsletter, and poll.

  3. A website that contains its very own domain and traffic counter.

  4. A website that is not loaded down with clashy banner advertising and popups.

  5. A website that only adheres to the highest standard of business ethics and does not misrepresent itself when advertising. A site which offers an array of free services to benefit the general public.
