Have you entered for the DEAs yet? Worried that you’ve missed the deadline?
Don’t worry, we understand you’re extremely busy. You might not have entered the DEAs because you’ve got a lot on your plate and a jam-packed calendar to manage since you got back from your summer holiday, but this year could be your year!
So, we’ve decided to extend our deadline by two weeks. The new deadline and final call for entries is Friday 14th September 2018.
With more than a decade of hosting the DEAs, we understand that your time is precious and filling in applications for awards entries can be tedious and time-consuming. That’s why we’ve created an application process that’s as simple and as speedy as possible.
There are only three questions to answer for each award, with the first question being: ‘Give us a snapshot of your business in no more than 250 words.’
This means that you could win one (or more) of our prestigious digital awards in three short and simple questions, and it needn’t take a substantial amount of your day to enter.
With 19 awards to choose from, four categories and four new awards introduced this year, we know there’s something that you, your business or team is perfect for. Now is the time to get the recognition you deserve!
If you’ve already applied – fantastic! Why not use the extra time to apply for further categories to increase your chances? Discover the five reasons why you should enter and the advantages of winning a DEA award.
Let’s take a look at a small selection of awards that are up for grabs:
Online Retailer of the Year
With online stores dominating the retail industry, this award is a big one to set your online world apart from the competition. Previous winners include Forever Unique and Master of Malt.
As part of the fast-growing eCommerce industry, online retailers are never at rest. New investments in innovation are needed just to stay afloat.
The judges are looking for an innovative and successful online retailer who has invested in pioneering marketing and development methods which surpass even these gruelling industry standards. The result of your successful strategy and investment contributes not only to your success but to pushing the whole industry forward.
This year’s winner needs to have demonstrable accomplishments in online retailing and evidence of the clear causation between an initial ideas stage and the bottom line.
Are you the next online business pushing ahead of your competition?
Digital Business of the Year (Medium to Large)
This is a huge award and recognise the incredible breadth of entrepreneurial talent using digital to get ahead in their industry. Previous winners of this award include LateRooms.com
Our judges want to see a clear indication of success. This award is not about an individual piece of work but a consistency throughout the year and a collective entrepreneurial approach to business. It is as much about the company’s relationship with digital as it is the successful projects themselves.
What’s your business doing above and beyond the rest and how can you prove what your business has done to make you the DEA Digital Business of 2018?
Best Use of AR/VR
Every year we look to see what has changed within digital businesses, what we can do to recognise the latest advancements in technology and how businesses have used them.
With the emergence of VR and AR technology, we believe that it is critical to recognise those who have advanced business with this new technology and used it in innovative ways.
Therefore, this year we have introduced this award to identify organisations which use this technology creatively and innovatively to streamline processes or perhaps offer a product or service in a different way. This award is for those who are imaginative and unique, using AR and/or VR technology to advance immersive user experiences.
Our judges are looking for those who have designed and created an interactive real-time, real-world experience, whether it be in gaming, marketing, education or other sectors. We want to hear how you’ve developed AR/VR to get ahead of the market.
How have you used AR/VR? Our judges want to hear!< Back To Posts
