How are ProductReview.com.au Award Winners determined?

In order to be eligible to be considered for an award, a product or service must meet these requirements:

  • Listed in a selection of the most popular categories on ProductReview.com.au,
  • Full retail availability to the Australian public for most of 2017,
  • A minimum Star Score of 4.1 stars on 31st October 2017, and
  • 8 or more approved reviews written and approved between November 1st 2016 to October 31st 2017.

From this nomination list, our in-house Data & Editorial Team performed qualitative analyses and metric comparisons to gauge a sentiment score in determining a winner for a category. In particular, the proportion of 5-star to 1-star reviews is taken into account, with more weight being given to reviews written in 2017.

There may be 1 or 2 winners per category, depending on the strength of the star scores (eg. a potential runner up would not win an award if the product or service does not completely meet the criteria, or there is a large gap of reviews between two potential winners).

The Data & Editorial Team may veto any award wins if has been any inconsistencies, breaches or violations with the Posting Guidelines for reviews pertaining to the item. Award wins do not play a factor in our ranking algorithm, and therefore, does not change item ranking positions on the category page.

Awards cannot be bought, nor influenced by any commerical relationships. For more information, read our section on award winners & commercial relationships.

Award Winners & Commercial Relationships

The ProductReview.com.au Awards season is completely independent to our Commercial offerings for brands (Brand Management Platform, Native Advertising, etc.). Any existing commercial relationships do not play a factor at all in any award judgement, either positively or negatively.

All items can qualify to win an award, regardless of a brand being a Brand Management Platform subscriber or Native Advertiser, as long as the item meets the judging criteria.
