Codegarden is virtual this year, but just because we can’t meet in person doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate the efforts of you, our friendly community...

...through the 🆕 Umbraco Package Awards! 🆕


🏆 What Are the Umbraco Package Awards? 

Packages have always been an essential part of the Umbraco ecosystem. Now, you have the chance to nominate a package and tell us why it should be recognized with an award.

Have you written a package that’s super user-friendly? Perhaps you’ve made the next best property editor? Or maybe you haven’t written a package at all but want to give someone a huge H5YR (high-five-you-rock, if you’re new to Umbraco) for making your favorite package?

There are various categories for the awards, such as best innovative feature, best UI and best package newcomer. 

Already have a package in mind? Let us know!

Submit your nominations


Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible for an award, a package:

  • Must function on any version of Umbraco that was released within the past 12 months (i.e. v8.6 or later) 
  • Must be listed in the Our package repository
  • Can be closed source/commercial or open-source
  • Cannot be owned by Umbraco HQ  

Any packages submitted that do not meet these criteria will not be considered. Nominations can be made by the package owners or collaborators themselves, or by any member of the community who has used the package.

Selection Panel

The winning packages will be selected by a panel of judges made up of HQ, package developers and community members who will evaluate and score each of the packages against the categories. Judges will not be eligible to win an award.

The winners will be revealed at the Package Awards session during Codegarden. There are plenty of prizes for the lucky winners, including a unique award and, of course, some Umbraco swag 🏆
