Please ensure you are entering the correct category, refer to the entry description if you are unsure. Please ensure you place the main component of your entry within the web-form provided and include all the information requested in each section. Including supporting material is encouraged but it should not comprise the main component of your entry.

Supporting material is optional and may be submitted in addition to the entry document. It should be used to illustrate/demonstrate what is in the entry document. Whilst supporting material is important and helpful to the judges, we ask that you keep these documents to a reasonable number.

  1. The Awards are open to any business which is part of the technology community that has some form of UK presence.
  2. Multiple entries are allowed across the awards where applicable. 
  3. Sponsors may not enter the category that they are sponsoring.
  4. All entries must completed within the entry web form provided.

  7. The Judges’ decision is FINAL. No discussions on recounts or requests for justification will be entered into.
  • Include tangible evidence of the impact your company, or solution, has had on your customer’s business. Judges are looking for hard metrics, particularly on business performance and growth.
  • Less is more. Our judges have to read hundreds of entries, be concise and focus on making your entry stand out above the crowd.
  • Stick to the entry form. Don’t go off-piste when it comes to entering. Supporting documents are just that… ‘support’. Your main entry should demonstrate the bulk of your submission.
  • Compelling stories make winners. Companies that change businesses for the better or demonstrate innovation are held in high regard. Tell a story which demonstrates why you deserve to win.
  • Don’t try and fluff it with waffle and marketing speak, our judges have been around the block (and back) and will see straight through ambiguous claims laced with sales talk.

Good Luck!
