The SPARKies 2018 Shortlist

Are you up for a SPARKie?
8th June 2018

This year has seen a record number of nominations for the SPARKies tech and digital awards 2018, and they’ve been some of the highest quality ever seen.

Across 16 award categories, 21 judges have spent 2 weeks carefully deliberating over some of the most creative and innovative 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 16 awards was closely contested with the nominees deemed of very high quality, with 8 companies still battling it out to be named The People’s Choice Award winner (vote here now).

The final award winners will be announced at The Marble Factory, Motion on 21 June, with the event headlined by Invest Bristol & Bath and The West of England Growth Hub.
