Digital Entrepreneur Awards 2010 are now open
Article date: Wed, 28 Jul 2010 15:46 GMTThe UK's only national awards dedicated to internet entrepreneurialism have this week announced that they are open and welcoming submissions. The Digital Entrepreneur of the Year Awards honour the pioneers of the internet. Searching for steadfast business leaders who spot commercial opportunities and technical geniuses working tirelessly behind the scenes on digital advancement, the ceremony has been rewarding excellence online since 2006. Over the years the awards have paid tribute to many of the industry's elite including high profile business giants Square-Enix, Sainsbury's and Henleys Clothing who were named the DEA Retail Entrepreneur of the Year in 2009. Speaking for last year's winner of the Green IT Entrepreneur of the Year Award, David Boon of Historic Futures said, "Being recognised by the DEA as online entrepreneurs is fantastic for our business." This year's 15 awards are split into four industry categories: Design and Technology, Sustaining Society, Business Category, and E-Services, and also include a whole host of new awards such as Re-inventor of the Year and Security Innovation of the Year. Mainstay awards honouring the Digital Entrepreneur and Digital Business of the Year are also welcoming submissions once again this year, as they remain firm favourites with market leaders from across the online industries. By partnering with dedicated hosting provider UKFast who has been looking after the internet fortunes of many of the UK's most competitive brands for over a decade, the DEAs have strengthened their industry knowledge and heightened their overview of the internet. UKFast's managing director Lawrence Jones says, "It is absolutely crucial to encourage entrepreneurialism online and reward those who are paving the way for a strong digital future." Winners will be announced on the 1st December in a glittering awards ceremony at the Palace Hotel in Manchester and companies can enter the awards for free by visiting the DEA website at: www.digital-entrepreneur.co.uk.
