Nominations close on the 6th May – get in quick!
Nominations for this year’s Tech4Good Awards close on 6 May in a week, so we’re reminding you about this year’s categories and our amazing panel of judges are this year, and giving you a few ideas on how you can help spread the word.
Why should you nominate?
By nominating yourself or someone else, you’ll be putting a project, company, organisation or volunteer under the spotlight. Do you want any – or all – of these judges to know about the great work you’ve been doing? As we heard from Simone Enefer-Doy, CEO of Lifelites, winning a Tech4Good Award can change the direction of your organisation completely.
Simone found that the charity grew in confidence, achieving goals that they never thought possible. They pitched for funding that they wouldn’t have even been considered for before winning the Accessibility Award – raising an extra £100, 000 in the first year.
This year’s Tech4Good Awards are
- Accessibility Award
Software, hardware or other digital innovation that transforms the lives of disabled people.
