The projects qualifying for the first round of the Bulgarian Web Awards 2013 are selected
156 applications, from over 170 registrations received, will be admitted to the contest. Traditionally the most popular panel is the professional. 53 entries will be participating in the panel this year. The competition will be most challenging in the categories "Mobile application" and "Best product and corporate website". A noteworthy trend is that this year there is an increased number of projects in all categories. There are twice as many participants in the Web Marketing panel compared to last year – 47, and the most popular category is "Social networks campaign". The most controversial category in the Branch awards panel is "Art and Culture, Science and Education". 9 projects will be competing in it this year. While in all the other categories the number of applications has increased, there is a decrease in the Media Web Awards panel - only 7 entrants.
