Winners were chosen among entries evaluated by a world-class panel of judges at Infosys, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing. Global Finance editors were responsible for the final selection of winners in the First Round.

Only banks that entered the competition were considered for awards, and awards were only given in those regions, countries and categories in which there were entries.

Winning banks were selected based on the following criteria: strength of strategy for attracting and servicing online customers, success in getting clients to use web offerings, growth of online customers, breadth of product offerings, evidence of tangible benefits gained from Internet initiatives, and web site design and functionality. Category winners, such as best in social media were selected based on the relative strength and success of those web products and services.

The Internet has transformed the way many consumers and most businesses bank, says Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher of

. The continuing improvements in Internet offerings represented by this years entries show that more significant Internet banking developments are still ahead of us.
