How it Works

API World 2019 is the world’s largest API & microservices conference, and the 2019 API Awards are the definitive awards night for the API & microservices industry.

The 2019 API Awards are given out for 20 categories, and the Advisory Board for API World, made up of industry veterans, will select category winners after the public nomination process concludes.

The API Awards celebrate technical innovation, adoption and reception in the API & microservices industry and by the developer community.

The 2019 API Awards nominations are accepted now through June 28, and winners will be announced on July 23. Winners will be presented with awards at the 2019 API Awards ceremony on October 8, 2019, at 6:00 PM during API World 2019 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Recipients receive (2) VIP Passes to API World 2019, a commemorative award, and media promotion and industry recognition.

Nominations are public and any technology, product or service that is or interacts with an application programming interface (API) or microservice is eligible for nomination. Nominees for the Innovator Award must be a person or team responsible for a significant innovation in the industry.
