  • You don’t need us to tell you that perfecting the resume submission process can be a burdensome task. Do you risk putting your email on the company website? Or if you have a resume upload option, what happens when the job is filled and the development team doesn’t have the time to remove the post? Worse yet, what if you’re not getting enough applicants directed to the site in the first place?

    Job posting sites, like Craigslist, offer an easy option for gathering applicants, but it doesn’t solve the problem of actually collecting applications. You need a form for that.


    It is the moment that we all have been waiting for... the announcement of the Best Form Design Award! 

    The Best Form Design is the capstone of the Web Form Design Awards. This single winner stands above the many form design contestants. They exhibited creativity and unprecedented proficiency in using our new Form Designer, to make a stunning form creation. JotForm users from around the world competed in their thoughtful and diligent designs, in the hopes of a prize. This prize. The Best Form Design Award. 

    Without further ado, we'd like to announce the winner of the Web Form Design Awards....


  • This was a chance for our users to have their voices heard by choosing the best form design, created with JotForm’s new Form Designer.

Users Choice Award Goes To...

One of the most anticipated awards in the Web Form Design Awards is the User’s Choice Award. Our panel of esteemed judges didn’t dictate the winner of this prize; you did. JotForm users, friends, and family all joined together to vote up the form design they liked best by sharing on Facebook and Twitter.

  • All over the world, JotForm users from over 61 countries fired up their computers, logged into JotForm, and set to work building and designing forms. They submitted their designs in hopes of winning a JotForm t-shirt so that they could be dressed to kill. On top of that whopping prize, they could receive the grand prize of $7,500 for the Best Form Design Award, as well as $500 for each additional category: Mobile Form, Best Survey, Best Contact Form, Best E-Commerce Form, Worst Form, and User’s Choice.

    Judges have been raving over the high-caliber forms that they have had the pleasure of rating. And now they’re cracking up over the forms that have gone to extraordinary lengths to be terrible.
