Most Innovative Solution

Innovation is not just about new technology, but also about rethinking how technology is applied to create new value and solve different challenges. This category pays tribute to those who make bold choices to drive progress and create change with their solutions. This is the primary focus of the jury when evaluating submissions in this category.

Furthermore, the jury emphasizes market understanding, understanding of user needs, and a plan for a sustainable rollout and growth curve, rather than just the results achieved at the time of assessment. We want to see your innovative solutions, insights, creativity, and courage.

Jury's Choice

Best Partner Solution

Umbraco Partners represent the most skilled and highly trained Umbraco developers, and we anticipate seeing remarkable achievements from each of them. We will select the best Partner solution of 2024 from among all submissions.

Umbraco Jury's Choice Award

All submissions to the Umbraco Awards are automatically entered into this category; however, the jury reserves the right to choose outside of these entries. The secret jury selects the solution that, in their opinion, best utilizes the full potential of Umbraco and sets an example of just how much value can be extracted from the platform.
