The SPARKies Awards celebrates the best of tech and digital in the West. And with so much bustling talent in the region, we have a list of over 100 individuals, startups, organisations and agencies all making the South West’s tech cluster what it is today.

Thanks to everyone’s incredible work, we’ve received over 200 nominations for the SPARKies 2020, even if certain world events have delayed our ability to shout about them! The nominations (many were nominated multiple times) include the most innovative uses of tech, those using their powers for good, groundbreaking virtual reality experiences, as well as nominations for the ones to watch in the future and of course, our community award.

Our amazing SPARKies Judges now have the tough challenge of deciding who to shortlist and who to award the ultimate winner’s title.

So, have a gander at this year’s nominees (in alphabetical order) and see if you can spot your favourites!
