DEA 2016 Finalists Announced
Posted on August 8, 2016 by Digital Entrepreneur Awards
Today marks a long-awaited day in the diaries of digital innovators across the country; the shortlist for this year’s DEAs has been announced.
After a week of serious scrutiny and debate from our expert panel of judges, we’re proud to release details of the precious few businesses and individuals who’ve made it that step further towards taking home a trophy at this year’s DEA ceremony. See if you made it through to the final round here.
Whittling down the entries to select just a few finalists for each award is a difficult process every year. We have to let go of some incredibly impressive entries and often find it hard to say goodbye to a large number of them. This year has been the hardest yet; with an unprecedented amount of entries, we’ve narrowed it down to a final 120 across 17 awards.
This year, we’ve been absolutely delighted to see the staggering range of entries, with startups and established businesses often gunning for the same award. And, surprisingly or maybe not-so-much, it’s been fascinating to see that the standard of digital work and the quality of the entries from businesses of varying sizes that have come in. The DEAs are truly unique, rewarding innovation and entrepreneurialism in the digital world above all else.
These next few months our judges will be working even harder to choose one winner for each award. It’s no mean feat – and we certainly don’t envy them – but it’s all worth it when we see the elation on the faces of our winners, and even more so when we hear about the positive ways in which going home with a DEA gong can impact upon business.
The winners will be announced at our ceremony on Wednesday 9th November at Manchester’s prestigious Palace Hotel. Whether you’re on the list or not, the evening is set to be electric, so why not join us?
So for now, huge congratulations to all you finalists!< Back To Posts
