Get yourself noticed with a BIMA Award

11 Mar 2019

BIMA Awards open for entry

Sometimes it can be a challenge to get your voice heard or your face seen in the crowd. Whether a new start or established business, sometimes you need a little something to help you stand out from the crowd.

A BIMA Award badge is that extra something - an independent, nationally respected endorsement of your work which defines you as one of an elite few moving the game on and the digital economy forward.

Everyone has a project which deserves recognition – start your BIMA awards entry process.

However, win or not, the entry process alone provides an opportunity to hone your pitch, improve your evidence gathering and refine your proposition – benefits that reach far beyond your entry.

New this year

We’ve made some useful improvements to this year’s BIMA awards, to help showcase your entry to its best.

 Our Digital Awards have been streamlined to six categories: simply enter and choose the project’s budget; under £70k or £70k and over.

We’ve introduced 13 Sector Award categories, to recognise the best use of tech or digital in other industries. Don’t be constrained - we’re looking for anything grounded in digital that is innovative and impactful within its specific sector. Again, don’t forget to choose the project’s budget; under £70k or £70 and over

You can enter the same or different projects into Digital Award and Sector Award categories.

We now have three Advance Award categories; our flagships promoting the best start-up and the best talent/diversity initiative of the year remain but uniquely we have added student of the year for the best in up-and-coming talent.

BIMA members can use free entries across all categories including Advance Awards.

We have also added an extra five Advance Awards which will be chosen by our judges, from all the entries we receive to the other award categories; Advance awards for Craft, for Innovation, for Impact, for Conscience and the Grand Prix.

First BIMA conference

Our very first BIMA conference is planned for the same day as the BIMA Awards ceremony.

The Lessons from the Future conference will bring together tech and digital experts for a series of inspirational studies and masterclasses on transforming the customer experience, harnessing Ai, the future of work and more.

So, with both events on 18th September, why not make a day of it? Book your tickets early.
