How to Design an Award Winning Form

November 18, 2014
The Form Design Awards are well under way. Sign-ups have been pouring in, followed by a healthy amount of final submissions. The Dec. 4 deadline is still weeks away though, leaving plenty of time to get involved. How can one be competitive? Here are some tips to help your form design stand out.

 
 


  Learn the Form Designer Basics
The Web Form Design Awards revolve around the newly released Form Designer. The first step in winning the contest is to learn our new design tool. Here's a brief video tutorial series on its functionality.

 
 
 


  Read up Advanced Design Expertise  
In JotForm's Medium Channel we recently published a few posts on how to take one's forms to the next level:

 


 
 


  Creativity Overdose  
For normal usage, practicality may win over flaunting the height of what designers can do. However, the Design contest encourages creativity: Push the limits, design something new!

 
 
 


  Make it Polished
Paying attention to details is key to winning. Every border, error message, color scheme, font, background, highlight- all these can be readily adjusted with the Form Designer. Fine tuning each is the key to a great form.

 

 

  Cast a Wide Net 
Although contestants can only win once, they're allowed to enter as many submissions as they like. Can't decide which form to submit? Try both! It only increases your chances.

 
 


  When all else fails 
There are two options for those who don't have top tier design skills.

Be exceptionally bad. The Worst Form Design category is for the spirited designers among us.
Be exceptionally popular. The User's Choice Award is voted by sharing on social networks. Those who can drum up the most support have a distinct advantage.
