3rd Degree Award ~ Guidelines

Make sure you have read the General Rules. This award is presented in three levels, Bronze, Silver and Gold and is reserved only for car sites. Judging criteria are as follows and in order of importance:

1. Useful information to other car enthusiast.
2. Ease of navigation (not getting lost).
3. Design appeal.

As you can see, your content is more important here than your design. As an example:
Poor Content with Excellent Design or Excellent Content with Poor Design would be rated about the same. As your content and design progress together, the higher award you will receive. This award is best described as a Technical Merit Award for Car Sites. Not technical in design, technical in content. If you have featured your car on your site, your car will not be judged. If your site mainly features your car you should apply for the Top Car Site Award instead.
