Neos Award Nominees

Dedication Award Nominees


Award Categories:

Dedication/Impact Award:

This category is all about: “Do things that others don’t”. The Award category does not follow a specific set of markers and is purely based on the submission we get. The jury will evaluate winners based on terms like sustainability, innovation, society/community impact or spirit. Those terms apply to the project or the company or agency.

Just to be clear, those categories could shift based on the submissions we get! This category is all about dedication regardless of budget, performance or any other traditional award markers. It is about spirit and “doing things, that others don’t” 

- Dedication stands for our very valuable contributors within the community and for those who push Neos CMS forward. 
- Impact is all about the greater good for all of us. It's about environmental, social or technical impact within our society.

Neos Award

The Neos Award will be independent from the Impact Award and is based on the following performance markers:

  • Performance/SEO
  • UX for editors
  • UI/UX for users
  • Technical Stack
  • Extensibility (Packages and UI Plugins)
  • Community Contribution
  • Boost (impact for Neos CMS brand)

All of those markers will be assessed with 1-5 points to evaluate the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners.

All the best, 
The NeosCon Team

THW App | David Sporer
Dedication Award

THW App | David Sporer

We award the THW App for a positive impact within our society. It has a huge variety of functionality (management of equipment and vehicles and notifications when and what needs to be done for its maintenance, member and contact management, calendar synchronization - depending on member rights, management of events and automatic e-mail notifications as well as participation management ). And it efficiently solves some organizational challenges within the aid organization and thus saves the volunteers a lot of time that they could use otherwise better. Because of that and the fact it's implemented in free time it fits perfectly for this social award.

Yoast SEO Package | Sebastian Helzle
Dedication award

Yoast SEO Package | Sebastian Helzle

We are honoring the Yoast SEO for Neos Package with a Dedication Award for valuable contributors within the community - and Sebastian Helzle is truly dedicated to push Neos forward. First of all, it shows how the Neos UI can be extended in various ways to bring additional information to the editors which showcases the advantage of the Neos UI and its combination of inline editing and side-by-side information system. Also the Neos community benefits from the Yoast SEO Package for Neos, since findability in search engines is a frequent requirement for websites and is therefore a widely used package (more than 10,000 downloads). Furthermore, Yoast-SEO is a well-known brand and this package is the official plugin for NEOS and is featured on the Yoast website.
 

Ökokiste | Sandstorm
Dedication Award

Ökokiste | Sandstorm

The project Ökokiste shows how Neos can be used to enable quick and easy customizable websites to small businesses at an affordable price. The focus during implementation was on the user experience of the customers, who can now concentrate on their core business, the production of organic products, instead of some technical implementation of their website. This supports small organic farmers that are important for a more sustainable lifestyle and shows how technical/programming skills can be utilize to make a positive change to the environment. That's why we award this project with an impact award for environmental, sustainable and social impact in our society.
