Innovator Awards

The inaugural Cloud Connectivity Innovator Awards shines a light on the impressive projects our customers and community users have taken on while using Kong. They recognize the innovative individuals and teams who have accelerated digital transformation within their organizations to drive end-to-end connectivity through modern microservices architectures.

Who can submit a nomination?

The call for submissions closed on August 27, and the judges evaluated each submission to select winners and categories based on the use case, challenges faced, innovative solution and unique differentiators.

Winners were notified in early September and announced at the awards ceremony at Kong Summit on September 28, 2021. Check below for a recap of the event!
