Prepare to be Amazed: Acquia Partner Site Awards Now Accepting Nominations
by Joseph Wykes
Our partners bring our solutions to life through their creativity, their development skills and their understanding of their clients’ businesses. The Partner Site of the Year Awards is one of my favorite programs because it showcases the amazing work of our partners. Last year was our inaugural year, and the bar was set high by our 114 nominees and seven category winners. I predict the competition will only be tougher in 2014, with more submissions and more great examples of digital innovation.
Last year’s sites were creative, innovative, and excellent examples of integrated functionality. They also embodied the use of content, community, and commerce. This year, we’ve added more award categories so we can highlight more examplarery sites. Share your best work for any of our 13 categories, which include:
-Internal Community Site
-External/Customer Community Site
-Media, Entertainment & Publishing
-Life Sciences, and
We invite partners to enter submissions between now and December 31. Finalists will be announced in April and the winners announced at Partner Day at DrupalCon Austin in June. Acquia has assembled a panel of distinguished experts to judge the submissions based on several criteria: visual design, functionality, integration, and overall site experience. We’ll share finalists and winning sites through social media promotions, PR and a showcase site. We’ll also invite winning partners to blog about their winning projects. So stay tuned and be prepared to be amazed by the work of our partners. Partners submit your best entries from this past year, the 2014 submission site is now open.
