Great Examples of Amazing Digital Experiences!

On a mission to help companies and brands thrive in the complex digital world, Acquia partners with top digital agencies that are creating amazing digital experiences. This competition serves as a chance to showcase the best examples of their work.

Acquia’s digital agency partners submitted more than 100 client sites for consideration across 15 categories. Acquia executives then selected 44 finalists, assessing each site on visual design, functionality, integration and overall customer experience. Finalists will be evaluated by a panel of experts from the digital marketing and Drupal communities, and winners will be announced at Acquia Partner Day during DrupalCon Austin.
