I am thrilled to see today that one of my hubs was awarded an Editor's Choice tag next to it! Does anyone know what the criteria is for this award? I'd like to earn more!
When the elves, chasing the girl elves through the files, trip and fall they will sometimes fall onto a hub. This maddens them (the girl gets away) and they occasionally fling the hub far away, where it can fall into the EC bin. The fairies there pin a new tag on it and relocate it away from the elves; it has become an Editor's Choice Hub.

Congratulations! How wonderful! Isn't this the very best accolade ever! Glow in the satisfaction of a job well done and fully recognized!
I didn't have any for several months after they introduced Editor's Choice, then one hub was chosen, then five, now I have eleven of them. They are not new hubs, all were already published when the program started. So, to answer your question, I don't know.
The criteria for an EC hub is simply a hub that is well-written and of a decent length. A 300 word hub entitled "All about Whales" just doesn't cut it.
It amazes me how happy people feel to get one, when quite possibly all of their hubs are well-written.
The whole EC program is an EXPERIMENT to see if good hubs do better on the main HP domain than they would on individual subdomains.
HP want to raise the bar so that the whole site will benefit.
Between EC and the QAP program, Hubpages hope to give good writers a boost while denying poor writers a platform. They still have some way to go but they are moving in the right direction.
Hey, that's great news and quite an accomplishment indeed. Never worry about the criterion. That's what makes it that much more special. If you begin trying to target an award, it sort of loses some value.
The recognition is testimonial to your hard work and quality hubs. Contrats!
I've had a bunch of EC Hubs, which I'm not fully sure I would have chosen myself. Good thing the Editors know better. I Like Them.
To be honest i had a bunch of EC awards and found it damaged my views of hubs and so i opted out of the program. since then views have gone back up.
so you decide, not sure it is a help from HP.

My "Inside the Beehive" hub just got the "Editor's Choice" award. After reading the posts about Editor's Choice, I feel like it is like getting the key to the city. It is a great honor, but it's not good for any thing. It doesn't even show up on my profile...

I know there's been a lot of discussion on the forums about the Editor's Choice hubs. First, I want to say that I really appreciate all the hard work and creativity that the HP staff put into our community, but I guess I just don't understand the idea behind the Editor's Choice hubs. I...

I am blessed with my fourth Editor's Choice on my last hub, "Altering a Waist for a Smaller Fit." Thank you, Hub Pages Team.Although I think the shorts are ugly, they are one of my daughter's favorites. The information, at least, is useful. The hub may just be inspirational to someone...

Is it as grande as it sounds? I don't have many hubs as of yet, and I don't have many views. One of my least viewed hubs (though the hub I'm most proud of) got picked for editor's choice, whatever that means, but it doesn't seem to have particularly changed the audience engagement with my hub. It...

I have 3 hubs that are editors choice. In my time of being on HubPages last few years, I don't think I have ever had that. How common is editors choice and is there a benefit to it?

I was pleasantly surprised when I logged into HP this morning and found that my most recent hub has been tagged with the "Editor's Choice" icon. Yay! After all these months with no EC nods, I was starting to wonder if I'd offended the Powers That Be somehow. ("Could it be my...
