In a year of unprecedented upheaval and change for all of us, we have been inspired by the stories of talented individuals, teams, companies, and communities across the Adobe ecosystem coming together to support employees, customers, and partners in a digital-focused world. 

The 2021 Experience Maker Awards will shine a spotlight on those companies and individuals who went above and beyond to deliver epic experiences around the globe. The awards celebrate the creators of exceptional customer experiences regardless of their starting point—whether content, design, marketing, or commerce. We want to hear your stories and are excited to announce that the 2021 Adobe Experience Maker Awards are now open for submissions.

Some important considerations as you prepare your submissions:

  • As in years past, companies may nominate themselves or be nominated by their solution or technology partners.

  • If the submission is on behalf of a client, the client must agree to the content of the submission and to being contacted by Adobe. For a full list of eligibility and submission requirements, click here.

  • The deadline for nominations is Friday, April 30, 2021, at midnight, US Pacific Time.

  • Three finalists per category will be announced in May and voting for the winner of the peer-recognized Maverick category will begin. 

  •  In June, we’ll announce the winners at our global virtual gala event. 

  • You are welcome to apply for multiple award categories but will need to submit a separate application to be considered for each category.

  • Detailed applications that explain what you did and why it’s important and that quantify the business impact and results are important in the evaluation process. 

  • New this year is the Illuminator category recognizing resilience in overcoming unprecedented circumstances.

  • Also, new this year, three awards categories (Experience Maker of the Year, Team of the Year, and Executive of the Year) will be awarded to winners within each of four regions (EMEA, APAC, Japan, AMER).
