A truly independent awards programme

The North American Software Testing Awards judges are appointed based on their extensive experience in the software testing field. These seasoned professionals, all of whom currently hold senior management roles, guarantee that each entry is judged fairly and accurately.

To ensure complete impartiality, all entries are judged anonymously with company and/or individual names, products, or references to any identifiable solution and/or service being removed before being distributed to the judges.

This stringent process means that each winner of an award has done so based purely on merit. So, regardless of company size, budget, customer base, market share, influence, vendor, academic, end user, consultant or otherwise; The North American Software Testing Awards truly is an independent awards programme that recognises and rewards outstanding achievement.
