Umbraco Awards 2018

What would Codegarden 2018 be without the annual Umbraco Awards? Well, it would be shorter and the awards wouldn't be annual. The awards are a great opportunity to shine the spotlight on some of the very best Umbraco work going on in our community with people using Umbraco in truly impressive ways. It's free to participate and if you want any chance of winning you have to submit your awesome work by the 5th of April 2018! These are the 10 2018 categories:

Umbraco Award for Best Cloud Solution

Show us what can be done with Umbraco Cloud. We have seen some impressive sites built on Umbraco Cloud, and we want to see even more. We are especially impressed if the solution is making use of Umbraco Cloud specific features such as Baseline.


Umbraco Award for Best Custom Solution

In this category we'll be looking for the coolest custom builds in Umbraco. If you have used Umbraco more as a framework than a CMS, this is the category where you should show it. Show us how far you can take Umbraco in customizing it.

Umbraco Award for Best Editing Experience

A good editing experience means happier end-users. We would like to see how you have made the connection between front- and backend as elegant and intuitive as possible for the editor. Show us your backoffice setup and why editors love what you have made.


Umbraco Award for Best Designed Site

We're looking for the designs that blow us away. Not only visually, but also in respect to web standards. Where stunning design meets clean markup.

Umbraco Package Award

New packages are created all the time and we would like to showcase and award the best of them. We are awarding the best submitted package, that has been created since Codegarden 17.


Umbraco Award for Best Gold Partner Solution

Umbraco Gold Partners are where the most skilled and highly trained Umbraco developers and web-designers are usually employed and we expect to see great things from all of them. We will choose among all submissions to find the best Gold Partner solution of 2018.


Umbraco Award for Best Certified Partner Solution

Certified Partners are among the top agencies when it comes to knowledge about Umbraco. With access to training and knowledge from Umbraco HQ they are able to build very impressive solutions. We will choose among all submissions to find the best Certified Partner solution of 2018.


Umbraco Award for Best Case Study

We are receiving a lot of information about impressive and well documented Umbraco projects that have been implemented throughout the year. Previously we have not been able to give them the credit we think they deserve. But at Codegarden 2018 we are changing that and will be awarding the best case study, chosen between the submitted cases since Codegarden 2017. It is up to the jury to decide between the case studies that have been delivered to Umbraco HQ which means you will not be able to directly submit to this category.


Umbraco Award for Best New Tech

In this category, we are looking for cutting edge technology integrated with Umbraco. VR, AR, Machine Learning, Smarthomes, Robotics, 3D printing etc. Or how you connected your grandmother's Tesla to Umbraco


Umbraco Jury's Choice Award

All submissions to the Umbraco Awards are automatically entered in this category, however, the jury can choose outside of these. The secret jury chooses the solution that they think is best utilizing the full potential of Umbraco and sets an example of just how much value can be squeezed out of Umbraco.
