Announcing the British Data Awards 2021

While our day job involves helping to secure businesses and their data, we’re equally passionate about helping to celebrate their data success stories. This is why we’ve launched the British Data Awards. Our aim is to discover and celebrate organisations that are passionate about data.

Whether you’re a newly-launched start-up with a tight knit team, a global giant with offices across the world, or something in between, we welcome you all to take part. Some innovations will be life changing while others may have a much smaller impact. Either way, we’d like to hear about what your organisation is doing.

Jason Johnson, Co-Founder of Predatech and British Data Awards judge said, “We know that British firms are some of the most creative in the world and data is increasingly at the heart of this innovation. I’m excited to kick-off this search and looking forward to announcing the Finalists and Winners in due course.”

Below you can find out more about the British Data Awards, including key dates, an outline of why your organisation should consider getting involved, and of course, how you can find out more and enter.
