About the 2020 Download Awards
The New Media Institute's annual Download Awards is the most inclusive mobile app awards program that exists today. Why? Typically, other awards programs charge for entering mobile apps for award consideration and only those entries who pay the fee are judged. At the New Media Institute, we don't like this model. We think all mobile apps available in the app store should be considered.
How does the NMI determine who wins a Download Award? The answer is quite simple. Data! Goodbye to the days where judges review mobile apps one by one with a subjective process. Our judges define the algorithm that is used with multiple data sets to determine which mobile apps deserve an award.
Each month, NMI will release the top downloaded mobile applications of the previous month - the Download 100.
Each year, NMI will recognize the most downloaded, the newest trending and the highest rated apps at its annual Download Awards.
A detailed schedule of reports and events will be released in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please contact us with any questions you may have.
