The UK IT Industry Awards, the industry's biggest and best-known awards programme, is now open for entries.
With 25 refreshed categories (including the coveted CIO of the year award, last year won by Mayank Prakash, CIO at the Department for Work and Pensions) there is something for every firm, team and individual.
The deadline for entries is the 7th July 2017. Each entry is judged by our expert panel, organised in tandem with the BCS, the Chartered Institute of IT. If you are selected as a finalist, you will be notified by email on Monday 21 August, by BCS brand team.
We then invite a max of two representatives from each entry (one for Personal Excellence and one representative being end user for Project Excellence) to attend a Judging Day on Friday 22 September.
Technology, Organisational and Project Excellence Finalists will be asked to give a short presentation of their entry to the judges. Personal Excellence Finalists will be interviewed by the Judges.
The night itself, always a glittering occasion, will be held at the Battersea Park Events Arena on Wednesday 15th November. With a special celebrity guest host - Jimmy Carr (above) hosted one recent ceremony - lined up, it's sure to be a treat for all.
