British Data Awards 2022 Finalists Announced

With a record 158 entries submitted, competition to be named a Finalist in the British Data Awards 2022 proved to be especially tough.

But today is the day! Today we’re proud to announce the Finalists of the British Data Awards 2022, with Headline Sponsor Differentis.

Among our Finalists are FTSE 100 giants, public sector pioneers, tech unicorns, agile not-for-profits as well as innovative start-ups. And despite all the obvious differences, what unites them all is a real passion for data, and we’re delighted to shine a light on their data success stories.

Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech and British Data Awards 2022 judge said, “Our quest to uncover data success stories has once again served as a reminder of the talent, passion, and sheer ingenuity that runs deep through the arteries of the United Kingdom. While judging the entries this year was a great privilege, it also proved to be a real challenge given the quality of the entries submitted, so I’d especially like to congratulate all the Finalists and look forward to celebrating their successes on the 19th May.”

We’d also like to thank the British Data Awards 2022 all-star judging panel for sharing their expertise and helping to select our Finalists:
