Organisers of the Hertfordshire Digital Awards have opened entry for 2016 on the same day as unveiling a brand new category.
HDA – the first and only scheme of its kind within the county – has returned, following its staggering launch event last year.
And for the first time Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards will be presented for a Website: B2B category at the Winners’ Evening in September.
The new website classification – for companies thriving in the business-to-business sector – will take its place alongside 15 other categories in a new look line-up.
There are now a total of nine website categories as well as “Use of Video for Business”, “Use of Social Media for Business”, “Mobile App” and “Spirit of Hertfordshire”.
HDA16 will also see the return of the immensely popular “Blog” awards for “Entertainment” and “Business”.
The “Online Business” category has been renamed “Online Retailer” to offer greater clarity to entrants.
An independent judging panel, made up of digital experts, the media, sponsors and executives from a number of internationally recognized businesses including Sky Sports will decide the winners.
The Hertfordshire Digital Awards was set-up to promote and recognise the online achievements of businesses, charities and schools from across the county.
Returning as |”Media Partner” for 2016 is the Hertfordshire Mercury, which will be providing rolling coverage of the scheme.
Entry is free and can be completed through the HDA website.
The closing date for entries is July 22, 2016.
