This year's panel include former culture minister Ed Vaizey, Open City director Rory Olcayto, dRMM co-founder Sadie Morgan and Marcus Fairs, founder and editor-in-chief of Dezeen.

"Archiboo's awards are a great idea, as they encourage architects to think about their website as the public face of their practice and as a vital communication tool, and they reward the best examples," said Fairs.

Past winners include Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios, Mae Architects, IF_DO, Conran and Partners, Witherford Watson Mann and BDP.

David Miller, whose firm David Miller Architects won the Best Overall Experience award in 2017, said winning "had an immediate impact on the practice".

"The analytics from before and after the awards prove this way beyond our expectations," David Miller.
