A ground-breaking new awards scheme that recognises the online achievements of businesses, schools and charities from across Cambridgeshire, has been backed by the county’s leading newspaper.
The Cambridgeshire Digital Awards (CDA) – which offers gold, silver and bronze prizes for excellence across 14 categories – has entered into a partnership with Cambridge News.
The daily title, which has been breaking news across the county since 1888, has signed up as media partner for the scheme.
The Milton-based media firm will provide rolling coverage until after the Winners’ Evening in November 2015.
It is the first time that organisations from Cambridgeshire will be able to compete for a range of accolades based solely upon their work online and entry into the scheme opened in May 2015.
The CDA are free to enter and it takes less than two minutes to complete an online application at www.cambsdigitalawards.co.uk
“Use of Social Media”, “Online Business” and “Mobile App” are just three of the categories to be judged by an independent panel of experts from the digital arena.
The other categories include “Blog”, “Lifestyle & Culture Website”, “Sports & Entertainment Website”, “Tourism & Hospitality Website”, “Marketing & Creative Website”, “Use of Video For Business”, “Online Marketing Campaign”, “School, Education or Charity Website”, “Responsive Website”, “Small Business Website” and the blue ribbon accolade for “Website”.
Andy Pritchard, from Premio64, the organisation behind the awards said: “We are thrilled to be working with a newspaper brand with the stature, heritage and reach of Cambridge News.
“With their strong print product and huge online following they are a superb fit for us.”
