Introducing the 2023 Acquia Engage Awards Finalists

October 4, 2023 3 minute read
50 finalists from across industries and regions worldwide contend for the top spots of the Engage Awards this year.

The anticipation and excitement of the Acquia Engage Awards continues to build as our judges face a huge challenge of deliberation. Every year, we continue to be impressed by the nominations we receive from our applicants, and this year is no different.

The Engage Awards celebrates the most successful and inspirational digital experiences created by our customers and partners. The annual celebration showcases organizations that have gone above and beyond to create the world’s most ambitious digital projects.

We received entries spanning a variety of industries and regions for our 26 categories this year. Our panel of internal judges narrowed down our pool of candidates to two finalists per category. Next, our external panel of reputable judges with expertise in DXP and digital marketing will carefully review the finalists’ Engage Award submissions, evaluating them on functionality, integration, performance, results, and overall user experience in order to select a winner for each category.

Jennifer Griffin Smith, Acquia’s Chief Market Officer, describes the quality of this year’s candidates this way:

The Engage Awards highlight remarkable levels of innovation, creativity, and dedication from our partners and customers. The finalists represent the very best at what they do and have raised the bar when it comes to excellence in their field. Congratulations to all the finalists for making it this far.

A big congratulations to all of our exceptional finalists! We’re proud of the hard work and achievements of all of our candidates. You have earned this well-deserved recognition, and we wish you the best of luck moving forward. Winners will be announced at Acquia Engage in Boston on November 14–15. Come and celebrate with us!
