CODiE Awardssince 1986, the SIIA CODiE Awards have honored thousands of software, education, information and media products for achieving excellence.  

How it Works—the CODiE Awards are judged in two phases; First Round Expert Review, which is done by industry experts, such as yourself and then by SIIA Member’s in Round Two. The CODiE Awards remain the only peer-recognized program in the business and education technology industries so each CODiE Award win serves as incredible market validation for a product’s innovation, vision, and overall industry impact.

All demonstrations are conducted virtually and take approximately 45-minutes to 1-hour with questions per product. After you complete your review, you'll be asked to fill out a scoring survey that contains a set of category-specific criteria.
