How do the TYPO3 Awards work?

The first order of business is submitting your nomination until 15 September 2024! 

By opening the submission period more than 4 months ahead of time, TYPO3 service providers can make sure to invite their clients and project managers to bring significant TYPO3 projects to a close. Once submissions are closed, our panel of experts will select a shortlist of the five most noteworthy projects per category which will be published ahead of the TYPO3 Conference 2024. 

Mark your calendar for Thursday, November 28, 2024, for the highlight event during T3CON24 in Düsseldorf, Germany. This exclusive gala will celebrate the announcement of winners in all 16 categories, culminating in the prestigious Website Of The Year Award. 

** Remember, the dress code is Cocktail Attire. **

How are the winners decided?

The nominated websites—five for each category—will be evaluated based on several criteria: 

  • Speed/Performance
  • Design/UX
  • SEO performance
  • Accessibility
  • Best Practices
  • Errors
  • Core Web Vitals

The TYPO3 Award 2024 winners are determined through a comprehensive evaluation process by a jury composed of digital industry specialists. These jurors bring a wealth of expertise in business, marketing, and technical fields, ensuring that their judgments are both informed and objective. Beyond the technical aspects, the 'human factor'—the jury's professional insight and experience—also plays a crucial role, allowing for a nuanced judgment that ensures winners excel not only in technical quality but also in creativity and overall excellence.

Who can nominate and what do I need to know?

Whether you’re working in a digital agency, government, higher education, industry or elsewhere you can submit a TYPO3 website* or application within one of the categories laid out above. The submission deadline is Sunday, 15 September 2024, 23:59 GMT +2.

There are a few eligibility criteria that you will need to adhere to. The project must:

  • Run a supported TYPO3 CMS version
  • Be publicly accessible (except intranets)
  • Be presented via screencast or showing of maximum 30 minutes (intranets)
  • Have the owner’s agreement for submission
  • Have been launched or rebuild in 2023 or 2024**

* per category a maximum of 2 submissions per company
** Legacy projects are admissible even without a specified launch year

Make sure you provide comprehensive information about the project for the jury to evaluate your work. The more details you share—such as project scope, integrations, contributions etc.—the better the jury can understand the full picture. 

To cover costs for the event, we charge a fee of €200+VAT for every submission. Our submissions page walks you through the submission process. Good luck!

Matt Beadle

Last year's host Matt Beadle, born and raised in southeast England, makes a return to Düsseldorf in 2024. Matt is more than just a presenter; he's your energetic guide through events, hybrids, award ceremonies, and films - always bringing a smile and a touch of British humor. If you're laughing, you're listening!

Specializing in sports and entertainment, Matt is equally adept at handling product launches and strategy workshops. He's a familiar face on German TV, known for live horse racing broadcasts and hosting Timbersports championships. Often compared to "Troy MacClure," he's also the go-to host for marketing campaigns and explainer videos for brands like BMW, STIHL, Weidmüller, and Greator. His versatility ensures an engaging experience for both live and hybrid events, from intimate gatherings to large-scale productions. In the last year alone, he has hosted events with audiences from 100, over 500, to one with 19,000. Though originally from the UK, Matt has made Germany his home since 2000, effortlessly switching between English and German (with a charming accent).

In addition to his presenting skills, Matt is a renowned speaker and a four-time author. He speaks on topics such as strengths-orientation, leadership, transformational communication, positive psychology, and intrinsic motivation.
