Since dev/publisher questions are off-topic here I've edited this to be more from the user's perspective; hope that's alright. – Matthew Read Oct 15 '12 at 13:12

That is decided by Google, more precisely by the Google Play Team.

Google today announced Editor's Choice for Android Market, aimed to help you find the best applications on the Android Market. Google's also going to begin awarding the "Top Developer Badge" to help show users who are the best, and most trustworthy apps. For consumers, it's a way to help find new apps. For developers, it's another way of promotion and to monetize.
