Awards recognise exceptional digital experiences developed in a time of ceaseless change.

We are incredibly excited to announce that, along with our fabulous client, AdaptNSW, we are winners in the 2022 Acquia Engage Awards. Together, we have won the “Building a better tomorrow” award, in the “Dreamers” category.

The Acquia Engage Awards recognise the most outstanding digital experiences that organisations around the world are building with the Acquia Open Digital Experience Platform (DXP), including Drupal Cloud, Marketing Cloud, and Widen.

The winning submission detailed the story of the our work with the Office of Energy and Climate Change for AdaptNSW. Built on top of Drupal CMS technology, and using extensive custom development including an interactive climate change map, the website exists to inform and empower communities, businesses, households and government to adapt to climate change.

“As climate change increasingly impacts our lives, resources like AdaptNSW will play a critical role in driving behavioural change by encouraging citizens to take positive action whilst adapting to changes that are already occurring in our world” says Chris McHugh, CEO at Sitback Solutions, “we’re incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve together. Partnering with organisations that are working to improve our world is incredibly important to the team at Sitback, and to be recognised for the quality of that work is the icing on the cake!”

This year’s competition attracted a record 120 entries. Each submission was presented to a panel of respected digital experts, who evaluated them on functionality, integration, performance, user experience, and other criteria.

“Showcasing the most impressive digital experiences, across industries and geographies, is a highlight of Acquia Engage,” said Mike Sullivan, CEO of Acquia. “Each customer’s story demonstrates the impact that creatively designed and thoroughly executed digital experiences can have on customer engagement and organisational performance.”

Many of this year’s Engage Award winners collaborated with one of more than 600 Acquia partners for specialised Drupal development and integration work, industry expertise, or digital strategy.
