The Elastic Cause Awards

The passion and devotion of the community using our products to do great work in the world is endlessly inspiring to us. We want to share it with you. Therefore, we are celebrating three Elastic user-community projects that are advancing the greater good of the human condition, the planet (or both!) and recognizing them at Elastic{ON}17 with the Elastic Cause Awards.


Thank you for your inspiring entries to the Elastic Cause Awards. Submissions are now closed. We have finished reviewing the fantastic projects and the three winning projects have been selected! They’ll be announced in the opening keynote at Elastic{ON}17 so if you are there, be sure to find the teams and congratulate them.

Until then, below is the shortlist of submissions to our inaugural Elastic Cause Awards. We respect and applaud all of you for your amazing work with our products. Thank you with lots of Elastic love!

The good we secure for ourselves is precarious and uncertain until it is secured for all of us and incorporated into our common life.
