The UK’s longest running digital and technology awards, The Big Chip Awards, has unveiled a number of new categories this week, as entries officially open.
The not-for-profit awards – run by independent trade association Manchester Digital – are now in their 19th year and recognise excellent work undertaken across the North’s digital and tech sector; anywhere from the Scottish borders down to Derbyshire.
This year, digital and tech businesses, innovative organisations, and inspirational individuals have the chance to be recognised in three brand new categories – Big Chip Transformation Award, Big Chip IoT Impact Award and the Big Chip Leadership Award.
As in previous years, entries will be judged by a number of the country’s digital and tech pioneers, led by design guru Malcolm Garrett.
There are 22 awards up for grabs in total spanning the entire digital sector, in areas including search, UX, gaming and animation, while rising stars will be recognised in the student and apprentice categories.
The deadline for entries is Monday 13th March and the shortlist will be announced on Thursday 27th April.
Chair of the Big Chip Steering Group, Shaun Fensom, said: “Each year our judges are more impressed by the standard of entries, which keeps on rising. Big Chip has always evolved along with the sector and this year we have added three new awards to the list.
“I expect we’ll see some familiar faces when we celebrate the winners, along with the best and brightest newcomers and rising stars.”
The Big Chip Awards will be held at Manchester’s Hilton Hotel on 15th June 2017. Entries can be submitted online at http://bigchipawards.com.
The first two entries are free. Subsequent entries cost £95 each.
