For more than a decade the DEAs have recognised the unsung heroes of the digital industry – from the entrepreneurs at the helm, to the programmers innovating behind the scenes.

So whether the market leader or leading the market, the DEAs are looking to recognise those driving the constant digital evolution in the UK.

Lawrence Jones MBE, CEO of main sponsor and cloud provider UKFast, says: “We’ve been the main sponsor of these awards for more than a decade now, and we have seen the extraordinary impact that the internet has, and continues to have, on business. Social media and a good website are no longer enough to make a business stand out from the crowd. These awards recognise those firms that are going above and beyond to ensure that they are at the forefront of the digital sphere. We’re incredibly proud and excited to be involved.”

With 12 categories, split between SME and large businesses, the DEAs cover all of the bases of the industry, rewarding success and innovation across the board. Entries are open from now until 12 June 2015, with winners announced at a glamorous dinner in October.

Last year’s event was attended by more than 300 business people and speakers included the Apprentice’s Neil Clough and sports star Diane Modahl. Even better, entry is free. For more information and to enter, visit
