Awards - deadline for submissions looming 08 May 2015


Nomination closes 29 May

There is huge competition amongst Awards schemes – and they have many different motivations. The NextGen Digital Challenge is different. It’s not about best people or best product or best service – it is about finding and celebrating great and transformative digital projects that help others understand new and exciting opportunities.

In this 5th year the Open Call for nominations will close on May 29th. Then in June the short-listed Finalists will be announced.

In September the independent judging panel will review all Finalist submissions and we’ll celebrate their achievements in November with a dinner in the House of Lords.

Public and Private sector highlights from previous years include:

  • Ground-breaking and future-proofed rural fibre broadband networks powered by local people
  • Imaginative approaches to Digital Inclusion
  • Fresh ways of utilizing spare capacity in local authority owned ducts
  • Projects to make public sector data openly available to all
  • New ways to track and report on the quality of mobile services
  • Several smarter city regeneration and community engagement schemes
  • And many other digital innovations

Why did they enter?

Some were seeking recognition. Some needed to share their success and enlighten others. Some didn’t enter themselves but were nominated by people who had been impressed by these digital endeavours.

This is an opportunity to celebrate your project success.
The 2015 Digital Challenge is free to enter and the nomination form is easy to complete. If selected as a Finalist we will ask for more detail to help the judging panel fully appreciate your challenges and solutions.

For more information visit awards or skip directly to the nomination form. But you will need to do it before the 29th May.
