Thanks to everyone who submitted an entry – the quality of entries was extremely high.
You can view the 2017 Shortlist here.
The event was sold out last year, many tickets have been pre-sold already and we have a slightly reduced capacity for seats at the venue. So please secure your tickets now to avoid dis-appointment.
Also we will be presenting the Net Visionary Award to a very worthy winner – don’t miss it!
We look forward to meeting you on the night and Good Luck!
We have 3 Awards which are open to public voting:
- Best Mobile Service or Application
- Best Use of Technology for Social Good
- Best Social Media Activity
You may send in your vote for one of the nominations within each Award category but you don’t need to enter for each Award. Your vote will still be counted if you vote for a nomination for one or all of the Awards.
The Public Voting will be open from Friday 4th August until Friday 11th August (midnight) so if you are a nominee, get busy on social media to ensure the votes come rolling in!
Public Voting open 4th August – 11th August 2017
Last Date for Entries – Tuesday 18th July
Entries have been coming in fast and furious in recent days and we’ve had lots of enquiries about extending the deadline.
So the good news is, we’re keeping the entries open for one last week. It’s free to enter and we limit submissions to 500 words; so it’s a quick process.
Go for it!
Btw – Don’t forget the Awards night (15th Sept this year) was a sell-out last year – tickets available to buy online now.
