Calling For Nominations, eZ Partner Awards 2020 Are Now Open
It's time to submit your nominations for eZ Partner Awards, tell us who you think deserves to win.
eZ Partner Conference is in three months' time - it's where you'll be gathering to learn what's new at eZ, network with peers and celebrate the best of the year just past. To that end, we'd like to invite you, our customers and partners, to cast your nominations for the eZ Awards which celebrate partners and customers who have developed the best and most creative Digital Experiences.
Tell us how you and your teams have created successful implementations, delivered exceptional digital experiences and have contributed to improving your businesses using eZ technologies.
This year, we have eight awards to honor our partners and their customers, five of which are open for your nominations. Enter for as many categories as you like, from one to all five. eZ New Partner, eZ Partner of the Year and - new this year - eZ Honorary Award will be selected by an eZ panel of judges.
The shortlisted finalists in each category will be announced on the eZ Blog in early January. Winners will be presented with their awards at the eZ Partner Conference in Malaga, at a special ceremony on the evening of January 23, 2020.
The deadline to submit nominations is December 6, 2019
