Sparkies16_web_bluelogoThe SPARKies 2016 awards want to award the very best tech company in the South West as voted for by YOU!

The new category ‘The People’s Choice‘, which has been kindly sponsored by community coworking hub ForwardSpace, will allow nominations of tech companies across the SPARKies qualifying region for being, in your eyes, the best tech company in the South West!

Self-nominations aren’t allowed for this one, so it’s up to you to nominate the companies you think deserve to win (or tap up your friends)!

So if you know a tech company who you think should be rewarded with this prestigious title, get nominating them now for People’s Choice – nominations close on 7 January.

Vote for your favourite

During the judging period between the 11 and 22 January, we’ll put out a poll of all the nominations we receive for the People’s Choice award – it’s then up to you to vote for your favourite.

The top 3 nominations with the most votes will then be shortlisted for the award, so keep a close eye out for more information on how to vote in January!

And the winner is…

On the night of the SPARKies awards on the 17 February the audience will be able to vote on their favourite out of the 3 shortlisted companies and the company with the most votes wins the People’s Choice award!

You can nominate a company on the People’s Choice nomination page. Please note, self-nominations are not allowed and all nominated companies must be operating within the SPARKies qualifying region.

While you’re at it, why not increase your favourite company’s chances of winning an award by nominating them in another category? There are 15 categories in total including awards for the best startup, best digital agency, innovative hardware, digital entertainment and more!
