Swift Community Awards

Celebrating our amazing community

The Swift Community Awards help us recognize the developers, conferences, companies, and more that help make our community so vibrant. It's all decided by you, so get involved today!


Nominations are now closed, and the shortlist is now available for voting.


The shortlists are made up of the popular nominations in each category – vote for your favorite!


With a broad range of categories, everyone can nominate their favorite tool and show their appreciation.


The Swift Community Awards aren't run by Apple – you, the Swift community, decide what deserves to win.


Nominations open: 1st January - 14th January

Shortlist voting: 15th January – 31st January

Winners announced: 1st February

Final voting is now open

We had just under 1000 nominations, covering projects big and small, and for people that are well known on the conference circuit to newer speakers who are just making their name. You can find the full list of nominations below, and we encourage you to explore more before casting your vote at the end of the page.

The lists are presented below in alphabetical order, but on the voting form they are presented in a random order. In some categories I have excluded one or more entries to avoid potential bias.

All set to vote?

You may cast one vote per category. All voting is done using a Google Form, so a Google sign-in is required. This allows you to edit your vote before the closing date, but also stops you from casting more than one vote.
