Sparkies16_cutout_bluelogoThis last two weeks has seen 21 fantastic SPARKies judges, mulling over the hundreds of creative, innovative and unique tech nominations received from across Bristol, Bath and the South West.

To be held in Bristol for the first time this year, the SPARKies awards 2016 will be bigger and better than ever, and the perfect way to celebrate the very best of the technology companies, organisations and individuals fuelling the success of the region.
