The ING's Media Awards results are determined by three independent judges in each category. Judges use a set of criteria to compare entries, without knowledge (except in the electronic categories) of which media member did the work.

The International Network of Golf is a 21-year-old, nonprofit, media-based networking organization whose mission is to enhance and promote communication and education in golf. The group conducts two meetings each year in the spring and fall, where media and industry leaders gather to discuss issues, launch and test new products, and develop relationships.
