Web and NFT Design Awards

Not just another worthless design award...

Bolt Awards isn’t just another pointless accolade to add to your website footer.  

We care about our community – 10% of entries go back to startups and nonprofits that enter via the Bolt Grant

Oh yeah, and the award for best-in-class is so rad you’ll actually want it on your office desk. And it’s free if you win.

You won’t find this award online at a promotional goods provider – no etched glass monstrosities here. And you don’t have to purchase your award later. When you enter and win, the award is on us.

The Bolt Grant

Bolt Awards is about supporting you, the design community, and your clients.
We do this by giving 10% of every entry to help two critical categories of businesses.

Businesses Open 24 months or less


We all know how difficult the first two years of business can be. Bolt is committed to seeing the next generation of design entrepreneurs succeed by investing back in them.

Winner of the nonprofit category


The nonprofit sector does essential work around the world. When you enter the nonprofit category, you also enter the nonprofit to split a portion of the Bolt Grant with you when you win.
