Call for judges

Help select the world’s best apps

The Tabby Awards – the global competition for the best mobile apps – is looking for judges to review the best apps and games for the iPad, Android and Windows mobile devices.

Regardless of where you are located, if you are an app developer, designer, project manager or publisher, or have direct knowledge about app development, consider joining our panel of judges. (We will also offer a few spots to consumers who are heavy tablet or smartphone app or game users on our consumer app panel, and to business people and professionals on our business app panel.) If you are selected, you will be asked to review a certain number of apps and games and to rate them on a dozen criteria, over a 4 to 6 week period, through a private online platform.

Why you should consider becoming a judge

Becoming a Tabby Awards judge is a unique opportunity:

  • to be exposed to the very best mobile apps in the world (you’ll get free promo codes to paid apps) and to experience the latest trends in app development;
  • to network with top app developers, designers and publishers;
  • to get recognition as an industry leader and promoter;
  • and, most importantly, to contribute to excellence in the app development field by helping select and celebrate the very best apps.
