Jotform wins Golden Kitty Award, nominated for another

We are honored, humbled, and overjoyed to announce that Jotform has won a Golden Kitty Award in the WTF category, plus received a nomination in the No Code category.

If that sentence sounds like something out of a weird dream, worry not. You’re awake. The Golden Kitty Awards are Product Hunt’s annual awards celebrating the best products and product makers in tech. And as you might have noticed, Jotform’s products have gotten lots of love on Product Hunt over the years.

But this is the first year we’ve been recognized with a Golden Kitty Award — and we were actually nominated twice: for our spoof promotional video, “The Table,” which won in the WTF category and for Jotform Apps in the No Code category.

Launching “The Table”

“The Table” was created as an elaborate April Fools’ Day spoof last year. Having just released our actual product, Jotform Tables, on Product Hunt just six months earlier, we wanted to riff on that name to launch something we have no business actually selling: physical tables. Only this table was special. It had advanced features like Bluetooth capability, a temperature controlled surface, and top-of-the-line hardware. If only it were real.

From a marketing standpoint, we put about as much production effort into The Table’s announcement video as we have for any actual product we’ve sold. We bought a physical table (and paid for its speedy assembly), rented a studio where we could film, spent nearly a full day filming various camera angles, and then hired a voiceover artist to give the narration a professional tone.

Fortunately for us, it paid off in the form of a pretty nifty statue.

Recognition for Jotform Apps

We were also thrilled to be recognized with a nomination in the No Code category for Jotform Apps. Released just a couple months ago, Jotform Apps lets businesses create their own mobile app in minutes, no coding required.

This is a game-changer. Having an app means businesses can offer their customers a faster way to book appointments, buy products, give feedback, apply for jobs, and more — all from one convenient place. We’re thrilled this offering was a hit with the Product Hunt community.

We’re always pushing ourselves to produce the next best product to help our users run their businesses more efficiently. Thanks once again to anyone who voted for us in any of the Golden Kitty Award categories.
