What is the goal of DevPortal Awards?

The goal of the DevPortal Awards is to recognize developer portals that show great examples in 9 different categories and to find the developer portal that provides the best overall experience.

What is a developer portal?

A developer portal is a site that provides APIs with all the documentation connected to it. In our understanding a developer portal is a self-service support hub, a trust signal, a communication nexus for API stakeholders and a key DevRel tool that helps an organization to provide the best possible developer experience for its APIs.

Why should I nominate a portal?

By nominating a portal you can draw the community’s attention to it and acknowledge the work of the people behind it.

Is there a nomination fee?

The nomination is free of any charges.

How many nominations can I submit?

You can submit as many nominations as you wish, but a portal can be nominated in a maximum of three categories by the same person.

Who can nominate?

Anyone can nominate by filling in the nomination form.

Who can be nominated?

Any public facing developer portal can be nominated. After the nomination phase the Organizing Committee will contact the owner of the portal and ask for consent. Nomination and subsequent publicity must be accepted in writing by the owner of the portal.

Who chooses the winners?

The winners of the 9 nomination categories will be chosen by the Awards Jury in October. In the Best Overall Developer Portal category two winners will be selected: one by the jury and one by the community via public voting. The portals nominated in any of the 9 categories are running for the Best Overall portal automatically.

What will the winners get?

The winners will have the appreciation of the community and opportunity for publicity. They will be interviewed at the Pronovix blog and the winners of the Best Overall category will be invited as podcast guests. There is no cash prize.

How do the winners receive the Award?

The winners will be announced and awarded during a virtual Gala event on 25th November 2020. We'll share a calendar invite with every contestant when the date is close.
