Last night The SPARKies awards brought together the best of the South West region’s tech and digital community to Propyard in Bristol to celebrate the best startups, designs, hardware, people and more and to finally discover who has been crowned the winner of our 17 awards.

Once again thank you to our wonderful sponsors who made the evening possible. And thank you to Stephen Bailey for keeping our guests charmed and entertained.

The SPARKies is also made by its fabulous judges, attendees – and of course those who took the time to nominate who they thought represented the best of tech in the West.

This year’s awards saw a record number of nominations of the highest quality we’ve ever seen with our judges commenting on just how tough it was to decide on the final shortlist. It was a true testament to how the tech sector continues to build back better.
