What would Codegarden 2014 be without the annual Umbraco awards? Well, it would be shorter and the awards wouldn't be annual. The awards is also a great opportunity to shine the spotlight on some the great Umbraco work going on in our community with people using Umbraco in truly impressive ways.

It's free to participate and we'll have the following categories.

 

Best Technical Solution

In this category we'll be looking at the best and most innovative usage of Umbraco, the concepts and API's. The focus is on the technical usage of Umbraco, so show us all the clever and innovative things you have done.

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.

Best integration

Umbraco usually doesn't stand alone and is often integrated with other systems. We've got our own award for integration (BNP CMS Awards) and we'd like to see how you're using Umbraco as a hub for other systems.

Rules

  • An individual or company can only participate once in each category
  • Only submissions with full details are evaluated & considered for nomination
  • The submitter must be the creator of the work
  • Voting will be done by the Umbraco HQ
  • Submissions are open to all not just CodeGarden attendees

Dates

  • Deadline for submissions is Friday 6th June
  • We'll announce the final winners during CodeGarden14

Notes

  • If you submit a website to the Umbraco Awards you will most likely want to buy a ticket to CodeGarden, so that you or your company can pick up the award in person if you win.
  • By entering into the Umbraco Awards please make sure you and your client agree that we may use your submission as a case study on the umbraco.com website - its great exposure for you and your client.
