Winners 2014

UK Tech4Good Awards: And the winners for 2014 are….

We received over 200 fantastic nominations for this year’s Tech4Good Awards. The standard was higher than ever so it was a tough job finding just three or four finalists for each Award, and an even harder job for our panel of Judges to choose the winners.

The list below includes all 10 Tech4Good Award winners for 2014, including the Judge’s Award, the Winner of Winners Award (chosen by our guests at the Awards ceremony) and the People’s Award, chosen by you – the general public. Thank you to everyone that voted through the website and on Twitter – we received an amazing 20,000+ votes in total.
