British Data Awards 2023

British Data Awards 2023: Nominations Open

Our quest to discover and celebrate the individuals and organisations that are passionate about data, and to uncover their data success stories, has kicked-off for another year.

Nominations can be submitted online by clicking this link.

Organisations taking part in previous years include FTSE 100 giants, tech unicorns, innovative start-ups, public sector bodies, not-for-profit organisations, and everything in between. And with a number of new categories, an all-star judging panel, and a glittering awards ceremony to look forward to, we’re excited to kick-off the British Data Awards 2023.

This year we’re also delighted to be joined by four organisations that are equally passionate about data as our category sponsors:

Soda, a data monitoring platform that allows teams to define what good data looks like, and resolve issues swiftly, before they have a downstream impact, are sponsoring ‘Data Leader of the Year’

New Possible, an employee insight platform, are sponsoring ‘Best Place to Work in Data’

The Dot Collective, a fast growing tech consultancy passionate about data engineering, cloud and agile, are sponsoring ‘Data for Good Initiative of the Year’

Calligo, transforms data into your most lucrative asset and are sponsoring ‘Data Transformation of the Year’. They combine great minds in data science, privacy, security and engineering with leading machine learning, data analytics and cloud platforms to support the operational, customer-centric and revenue-generation aspirations of some of the world’s most ambitious and progressive organisations.

Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech and British Data Awards judge said, “The United Kingdom is widely considered to be a hotbed of innovation. The British Data Awards helps to shine a light on the people and organisations behind this well-earned reputation, and I can’t wait to see which organisations emerge as Finalists in March.”
