Excel, Inspire, Shape

IT and digital services are playing a critical role during the current COVID-19 pandemic. Now more than ever, we should recognise and reward the IT professionals behind these services: the vital workers ensuring people and businesses stay connected during this crisis and keeping the national infrastructure working.

We want to celebrate organisational and individual excellence; those who are inspiring the next generation of IT professionals and helping to shape the future of IT, our industry and digital society.

The UK IT Industry Awards 2020 promises to be the most inspirational awards yet, as we recognise the very best in IT and those who've played invaluable roles in keeping society connected and safe this year.

We're looking for inspirational leaders, teams and individuals that deserve recognition for their professionalism and contribution to IT.
