Chris Manley, the CEO and co-founder of Engenius, and TJ Deluccia, Engenius’s Chief Operating Officer, were selected as jurors for the Academy of Interactive and Visual Arts (AIVA) 2023 Global Web Awards, which sanctions all judging for The Communicator Awards, Davey, and w3 Awards. AIVA’s mission is to set a standard of excellence for evaluating and honoring creativity, marketing, and impactful communication.

Manley and Deluccia are first-time AVIA jurors and will join a diverse assembly of professionals from all 50 states and 15 countries dedicated to recognizing the rapidly-evolving nature of traditional and interactive media. Manley has served as a judge for the Web Marketing Association’s (WMA) Web Awards since 2016, an international competition recognizing the best in website development across 96 industries.

The Communicator Awards honors excellence, effectiveness, and innovation across all areas of communication. One of the largest awards shows of its kind, The Communicator Awards receives almost 5,000 entries annually from companies, agencies, studios, and boutique shops of all sizes worldwide. Judging for the current Communicator season occurs in the Spring of 2023.

The Davey Awards is the first major awards competition specifically for smaller companies, honoring the achievements of those who derive their strength from big ideas rather than Goliath-sized budgets. Judging for the upcoming Davey season will begin in the Summer of 2023.

The w3 Awards honors outstanding Websites, Marketing, Video, Mobile Sites & Apps, Social and Podcasts created by some of the best digital agencies and creators worldwide. It is the first major web competition accessible to agencies and firms of all sizes and stature. Judging for the upcoming w3 season will begin in the Summer of 2023.
