Meet the Judges

Our expert panel of judges have worked across the technology, digital and charity sectors for a number of years, and have the unenviable job of narrowing down our 250+ entries to just 28 finalists.

Our judges pick the winners for seven of our Award categories, but the winner of the 8th Award, the Tech4Good People’s Award, is chosen by you, the general public. Visit the People’s Award page for more details on how you can vote for the winner.
