CATEGORIES

Open to all Scottish based companies.

BEST NEW PRODUCT OR SERVICE

Can be entered by any company who have developed a product/service that can be viewed as innovative or disruptive. We are looking to recognise the very best achievements in harnessing the power of digital to secure a clear market success. Your product/service will be either sold B2B or B2C.

FINTECH INNOVATION

Judges are looking for an exciting, far-reaching technology-based method/type/style of innovation that disrupts the financial services sector. Show how your business has provided solutions that fundamentally improve customer service and/or business performance.

INNOVATION WITHIN THE PUBLIC SECTOR

Judges are looking for evidence of how innovative technology solutions have been used to revolutionise and streamline delivery of essential public services to their end-users. Demonstrate how your company has provided the best solution to a public sector challenge

BEST TRAINING PROGRAMME

Identifying and maximising skills can galvanise action and can accelerate growth. Education, training and upskilling are fundamental to this approach. We are looking for the inspirational, practical and effective education and training solutions which have made this happen.

CYBER SECURITY INITIATIVE

For this award, we want to recognise a creative initiative or new product launched in the last two years that has broken boundaries and increased market size. Has this revolutionised the market in some way, pushed the limits of insurability or overcome technical challenges?

TRANSFORMATIONAL INNOVATION THROUGH DATA

This award is to recognise teams or individuals who have used Data to innovate and transform their business, their client relationships or the services and products they deliver to market.

CULTURE & LEADERSHIP AWARD

Helping to grow a technology company takes ambition, vision, market insight and spades of hard work. Your company culture is a reflection of you and what your organisation stands for, it’s the voice of your business and employee satisfaction is key. This category will recognise the company who has best defined a common language, values and standards, placed employee wellness at their core, has great communication and have a leader who is the company’s strongest advocate. We are looking to find the person who has the proven leadership skills to inspire their team and the dogged determination to grow their business even when the going gets tough.

DIGITAL AGENCY OF THE YEAR

We will be looking for the agency which has brought genuine flair and imagination to their client’s brief. The judges will be looking for original thinking, impressive execution and – above all – clear results from a project or commission

DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY BUSINESS OF THE YEAR

Our top awards will go to the businesses that most impress the judges with their commercial and financial success. The business will be demonstrably well-managed, produce outstanding technology products or services – and above all has outstanding long-term growth potential.
