After 2 weeks of careful deliberation over a record number of nominations, 21 judges have finalised the SPARKies tech and digital awards 2017 shortlist
6th June 2017

Sparkies16_cutout_bluelogoThis year has seen a record number of nominations for the SPARKies tech and digital awards 2017, and they’ve been some of the highest quality ever seen.

Across 15 award categories, 21 judges have spent 2 weeks carefully deliberating over some of the most creative and innovative apps, projects, companies, experiences and designs – as well as some of the most dedicated people in the region – all deserving of recognition for the work they’ve done to support and grow the South West tech cluster.

The SPARKies shortlist

Each of the 15 awards was closely contested with the nominees deemed of very high quality – including the People’s Choice shortlist which, at over 700, saw more than double the number of voters this year than it did for the SPARKies 2016.

The final award winners will be announced at Komedia Bath on 29 June, with the event headlined by Gradwell Communications.
