In case the Innovator/09 competition below isn't your cup of tea we've just opened the nominations for the 2009 Yorkshire Digital Awards!
This year you can either nominate yourself for a category, or nominate another company that you work with which you feel deserves some recognition. We've heard from previous winners that the competition has a really positive effect on sales due to all the free promotion your company receives so I *really* recommend entering if you can. Especially at this time of year when you don't want to start a whole new project but need something to keep you busy for your last afternoon in the office ;-)
Anyway, categories are:
Best Web Design Company
Best IT Consultancy
Best Business to Business Website
Best Business to Consumer Website
Best Application of Internet Technology
Best Digital Start Up
Best Entertainment Site
Best e-Learning Initiative
Best Application of Mobile Technology
Best New Talent
To enter all you have to do is fill in a form which can be found on the website:
If you're feeling flush with Christmas cheer there are also still a few categories that need sponsoring, in which case just drop me a line.
Finally, even if you're not entering and not sponsoring, don't forget the actual awards ceremony itself. A great craic and with over 300 people attending it's a good way to meet some interesting people (including a few of us lovely Yorkshire Forward folk). Be warned the tables fill up really fast so if you want to go you need to book your place pronto!
Date: Thu 7th May, 2009
