2021 Acquia Engage Awards Finalists Announced

We're excited to announce the finalists for the 2021 Acquia Engage Awards!

Back in June, Acquia put out a call for the most ambitious digital solutions and success stories. Unsurprisingly, our spectacular customers and partners delivered in spades! This year’s Acquia Engage Awards had a record number of submissions with over 100 entries spanning many industries and parts of the globe. The quality of all our submissions is a testament to how these businesses went above and beyond to defy difficult circumstances and adapt to change. 

We assembled a panel to evaluate how well these Doers, Builders and Dreamers embraced digital transformation to produce world-class customer experiences. Nominations were judged on everything from advanced functionality, efficiency, scale and performance. 

This year we also introduced multiple new categories to acknowledge the special circumstances businesses have dealt with throughout 2020 and 2021. Every Engage finalist represents an organization that has embraced innovation and made a major impact through delivering digital experiences. 

Check out this year’s esteemed Engage Awards Finalists below. Winners will be announced at Acquia Engage, taking place October 26 and 27, 2021. 

Congratulations to all of our finalists on their inspiring and innovative solutions.
