Last chance to enter Northern Ireland's prestigious tech awards

There are just two days left to enter Northern Ireland's newest technology awards.

Thursday is the deadline for the Digital DNA Awards, sponsored by BT Business & Public Sector. Innovators, entrepreneurs and organisations are encouraged to enter a range of categories.

Digital DNA's chief executive Gareth Quinn said: "We're delighted that BT is principal sponsor for our first ever awards. We are hugely passionate about recognising and acknowledging the drive, energy and commitment of the innovators who are making real change to have a positive impact in Northern Ireland through the work they are undertaking locally and internationally.

"We believe that success by doing things differently merits reward and attention, so we want to encourage local business, technology companies, organisations and entrepreneurs.

"These awards are about acknowledging the challengers, not the followers."

There are 12 categories including Business of the Year, Best use of E-Commerce, Best Tech Innovation in the Third Sector and Best Use of Social Media, as well as Newcomer of the year and Business Personality.

Taking place on June 8 at the Digital DNA after party in Life Church, Belfast, the Digital DNA Awards will provide an opportunity for local businesses, technology companies, organisations and entrepreneurs to showcase their talent to speakers, sponsors and delegates.

Paul Convery, head of BT Business Northern Ireland said: "We're absolutely delighted to support Digital DNA's inaugural awards evening to recognise companies who are leading change within NI and our thriving tech industry."
