Judging Process
The editor-in-chief selected the winners by consulting with other JDJ editors to review nominations and make selections.  The Editor’s Choice Awards is based on the judgment of the editors, not on votes.  It is also not based on product categories.  If two of 10 products compete in the same category, both can win awards if they pursue unique approaches to a similar problem.  There is also no rule that each category must have a winner.
