Introducing the Zappy Awards

We're celebrating the innovative wizards behind the magic of automation.

By Maranda Borchert · June 19, 2024

Each year, Zapier users automate more than 24 billion tasks, and their innovative workflows are completely reimagining the way we work. To celebrate the people behind this magic, we’re launching Zapier’s first-ever customer awards, the Zappys! 

We want to hear all about the innovative Zaps and workflows you’ve built that leave your team wondering if you’re actually a wizard.

The 2024 categories that you can submit to are:

  • Marketing Innovator of the Year. Calling all super scalers! Tell us how you’ve used automation to increase leads, grow revenue, get more customers, or otherwise scale your work and impact. 

  • Top Sales Professional of the Year. Sales pros assemble—we want to hear how you use automation to respond to leads faster, close more deals, and boost the bottom line.
