Applaud the Best DevPortals

DevPortal Awards brings together the API community to recognize, celebrate and learn from the world’s greatest developer portals and their API documentation.

About DevPortal Awards

What is DevPortal Awards?


A handful of leaders in the API space are developing DX innovations for their API products and developer portals, but these efforts are not coordinated, and it is difficult to see clear trends in the API docs space. We want to create an opportunity to celebrate the best developer portals and their API documentation components, so that the API industry as a whole can accelerate its own learning. The DevPortal Awards will recognize and celebrate the best solutions in a number of categories - what we believe to be the key components of a developer portal.

Nomination conditions

  1. Every nominated portal must be a public (not internal) API developer portal.
  2. Multiple category submission of a portal is allowed, in a maximum of three categories.
  3. Nomination and subsequent publicity must be accepted in writing by the owner of the portal. The Organizing Committee will contact every nominee in an email to ask their consent.
  4. Submissions are accepted from June until September.
  5. Every nominee is running for the Best Overall Developer Portal automatically. In this category two winners will be selected, one by the community and one by the jury.



DevPortal Awards timeline

It's August, so nomination is still open! Community voting for the Best Overall Developer Portal will start in mid-September and, in parallel, the Awards Jury will select the winners of the nine nomination categories, and they will select their favorite portal in the Best Overall category too. Winners will be announced at the Awards Gala.
