The judges for the Acquia Engage Awards face a big challenge, one that grows bigger with each year that passes. That’s because the accomplishments that our entrants submit become more impressive year after year. And 2022 is definitely no exception. 

The Engage Awards celebrate the very best work that’s done using Acquia products. The annual celebration showcases organizations that have gone above and beyond to create the world’s most ambitious digital projects.

Yet again, this year’s Engage Awards drew a record number of submissions, with more than 120 entries spanning a variety of industries and regions. Contenders submit entries for a specific award in one of three categories: Doers, Builders, and Dreamers.

A panel of distinguished judges with trusted expertise in DXP and digital marketing carefully reviews every Engage Award submission, evaluating them on functionality, integration, performance, and overall user experience. The judges select just two finalists per category.

Mike Sullivan, Acquia’s President and CEO, describes the quality of this year’s entrants this way:

“Every year, we see higher levels of innovation, creativity, and dedication in the Engage Awards submissions. Our 2022 finalists are truly our most outstanding yet. Being named a finalist is an incredible accomplishment, and every organization represented on the list is among the very best at what they do.”

We’re proud of the hard work and accomplishments of all of our entrants. And we’d like to congratulate all of our impressive finalists. You’ve earned this recognition, and we wish you the best of luck going forward. Winners will be announced at Acquia Engage in Miami on October 25–26. Celebrate with us!
