The deadline for entering the V3 Technology Awards 2015 has arrived, with all entries due in today.
The fifth annual V3 Technology Awards celebrate the best technology companies, products and individuals across the industry.
This year's categories cover the business technology spectrum from mobility and security through to innovation and the Internet of Things. The full list of categories is available below, and you can enter via the online entry system.
You can enter on behalf of your own company or a third party using the entry form. If you are a PR agency entering on behalf of a client, please ensure that your client is aware of this before submitting the form.
Entry requires a written overview of the product, organisation, project or individual you are nominating, of between 100 and 250 words.
The entry text is your opportunity to tell us what you think makes your product, organisation, project, innovation or individual a worthy winner in the chosen category.
Information will be used for judging purposes only and will not appear on the V3 site.
A panel of V3 technology experts will read and assess the entries to form the shortlist. The shortlist will then be shared with our readers - your customers - to vote for their favourites.
Entries should be for products available in the UK, carried out with UK customers or from firms operating in the UK. The products or projects should have been launched from 1 September 2014 onwards, or updated with new features since that date.
As in previous years, the awards are free to enter and you can enter as many categories as you like. We want to encourage as many innovative and successful technology businesses, individuals and projects as possible to highlight their achievements.
However, those organisations that are selected for the shortlist are required to attend the awards and purchase a minimum of two tickets at £500 each.
The closing date for entries is 11pm BST on Friday 14 August, and reader voting will take place during September. The winners will be unveiled at the V3 Technology Awards 2015 ceremony at The Montcalm, London on Friday 27 November.
