Find all the winners here

Written by Anders Trans Sørensen

Another year full of amazing Umbraco projects, another Umbraco Award show! …just under different circumstances. But that didn’t stop us from casting the spotlight on 7 wonderful Umbraco solutions that have been created since May 2019. If you didn't catch all the winners during the live stream, here you'll find the list of the 7 2020 Umbraco Award winners 🥇

The Umbraco Award show is our way of sending love back to some of the people using Umbraco in truly impressive ways. Usually, we do all of this at our yearly Umbraco conference, Codegarden, where we get the winners on stage, give them a cheer, shower them in Umbraco glory and give them a big H5YR! Now, with the whole Corona situation, you might have thought the party was cancelled...

No way. We decided to take all the festivities and celebrate virtually during a live stream on YouTube (a celebration free for you to re-watch) 🎉

If you didn't catch the live show and you want a brief summary - you've come to the right place! 

How we make the difficult decision

Umbraco projects are submitted to the Award every year, and from that huge pool of Umbraco talent, the Umbraco Award jury selects the final winners. 

The Award jury consists of members from Umbraco HQ and valued members of the Umbraco community.

The 2020 jury consisted of: 

Emma Garland - Senior Software Engineer at Rock Solid Knowledge

Ebba Burenius - Business Director at Limetta

Andreas van Amerongen - Senior Project Manager at The Valley

Anders Trans Sørensen - Major Friend Maker at Umbraco

Martin Wülser Larsen - OCD at Umbraco

So with all that out of the way, let’s just get to it 👇🏼

Wow! What a year ✨

Are you as amazed as we are? 

We had such a hard time choosing the winning solutions so once again: A big thank you to everyone who found time to submit solutions this year! We know that things haven’t been the same, so we really appreciate the time and effort that went into all of this. 

One good thing about a virtual party, however, is that you don’t have to suffer from the fear of missing out 😉 If you missed the show, you can re-watch the whole thing right here! 

Loved by developers, used by thousands around the world!

One of the biggest benefits of using Umbraco is that we have the friendliest Open Source community on this planet. A community that's incredibly pro-active, extremely talented and helpful.

If you get an idea for something you would like to build in Umbraco, chances are that someone has already built it. And if you have a question, are looking for documentation or need friendly advice, go ahead and ask on the community forums.
