Frequently Asked Questions


What is the NovaStar Award?

The NovaStar Award recognizes companies, products and people around the world who demonstrate a passion for excellence. Research shows that winning an award and displaying a logo can increase credibility. We want to find those diamonds in the rough and showcase your hardwork to the world.

Who qualifies for the NovaStar Award?

Any company that is applying in the appropriate category is eligible to apply.

Do only big companies win?

Absolutely not! The NovaStar Award levels the playing field so that small and mid-sized companies have an equal chance as large corporations for winning awards based purely on the merits of the submission.

What’s the judging process?

Our judges have deep experience working for and marketing for technology companies, from Fortune 500s to start ups and crowdfund projects. We judge each app according to multiple set criteria, including user interface, ease of use, stability, and others.

In order to maintain total neutrality, no company that is affiliated with NovaStar’s parent company or its employees are allowed to enter.

How much does it cost?

Each award category has its own costs, with discounts for multiple entries. We’ve set a price that is affordable for any company’s budget, yet high enough to ensure quality submissions.

What’s the deadline?

Each category’s deadlines are different, so please check for the upcoming deadlines. Also follow up on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to keep up to date.
