        Selected from suggestions from all Amiga users in the country.
    • (Product) - best Amiga or Amiga related product
        This category does not exist in all countries. It only does where there is basis for it.
        Selected by jury from suggestions from all Amiga users in the country.
    • Long-Term Achievement - outstanding achievements over a long time
        Handed out on the initiative of the national Associate and the AAA Awards Committee based on community opinion.

The awards are presented by founding Amiga user association Amiga Computer Group together with its Associates and Partners world-wide.

Each award consists of a framed fine hand-written diploma, with the official motivation. The International awards also feature a hand-cast, crystal glass Boing ball!

The procedure for selecting the award winners is:

  1. during the present year, everyone is welcome to suggest candidates for the awards along with a motivation. Suggestions should include the suggester's name and address, if further information is needed
  2. ACG and its Associates all select a jury for the Product categories respectively (no jury is needed for the Community category)
  3. in January the following year, ACG and its Associates compile all suggestions for each category respectively. For the Product categories, ACG and its Associates shall then send the summaries to each jury member
  4. some time in February the following year, the appointed juries select a winner in each Product category
  5. the "Community" suggestions are counted, the winner being the one with the most suggestions
  6. the winner material is made and shipped
  7. the awards are handed out by ACG and its Associates world-wide at different occasions
When selecting the winners, all juries world-wide have only one guideline: "The awards should go to he/she/that/those which/who has/have done the greatest achievement in contributing to the upkeeping of AMIGA® values during the past year."

The jury must comply to a set of rules:

  1. at least seven (7) people must make up the jury
  2. suggested candidates that wish to run for nomination or otherwise subjective people may not be part of the jury
  3. no financial, religious or other factors than the guideline may influence their decisions

There are really no limits as to who may receive the awards. It may go to companies, private persons, user groups, etc. The awards may also be presented posthumously. You can even suggest yourself for the awards.
