We are pleased to announce that the Workfront Lion Awards, by Adobe, are continuing in 2021 and will be announced and celebrated at the Adobe Experience Maker Awards gala in June 2021. The Lion Awards honor our most outstanding customers—those who are achieving positive, measurable results as they transform work management within their organizations.

How to apply for a 2021 Lion Award.

Visit the Lion Awards website before April 30, 2021, to learn more about the categories and last year’s winners, and to submit your application. The site also includes more detail on who makes a good candidate for each category and the type of information you should include in your application. 

Applying for a Lion Award is a great opportunity to:

  • Highlight the way your team adapted to succeed in a year filled with change.
  • Help your organization understand just how much value you bring to work every day—and earn credibility as a Lion Award winner. 
  • Demonstrate what success looks like in work management and set the standard for everyone else to measure themselves against.
  • Promote your brand as a leader in work management by sharing how you innovate.
  • Get your company extra recognition among the top companies around the world. 

Lion Award winners represent the very best in work management. Their accomplishments inspire others, which is why we will announce and honor them at the Adobe Experience Maker Awards gala in June 2021. Finalists and winners are offered additional opportunities throughout the year to be recognized by peers and industry for their contributions to work management transformation.  

We look forward to celebrating work management leaders and their impact on reimagining the future of digital work.
