Digital Challenge Awards


The NextGen Digital Challenge Awards celebrate innovation, success and leadership in the UK’s digitally transformed economy. The awards are the UK’s prime showcase - the Oscars - for the best in next generation digital innovation. Since their inception in 2011 we have awarded ground-breaking projects from all over the British Isles. The Awards are not for profit and are judged by a distinguished panel of independent judges. The Awards ceremony takes place in the House of Lords on 5 November.
