CAMBRIDGESHIRE: CDA17 Finalists Announced

The finalists of the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards 2017 have been unveiled, ahead of an historic finale to the competition.

With the backing of headline sponsor Nimbus Hosting, winners of the CDAs will – for the first time in Digital Awards history – be announced entirely online.

In a break from tradition organisers have decided to crown the winners of Gold, Silver and Bronze Digital Awards in 11 categories via social media, rather than laying on a presentation soiree.

The winners of CDA17 will be chosen by the Digital Awards independent judging panel and revealed via Twitter on November 1.

The CDAs are supported by Department for International Trade, Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership, Connecting Cambridgeshire, South Cambridgeshire District Council, Cambridge Network and Opportunity Peterborough.

CAMBRIDGESHIRE: South Cambs Council Joins CDA16

A progressive local authority which has set “Connected Communities” as one of its top priorities has joined forces with the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards.

South Cambridgeshire District Council (SCDC) has signed up as a “Supporter” of CDA16 and will attend the Presentation Evening in November at The Belfry Hotel, close by to its headquarters in Cambourne.

It is the latest influential organisation to back the Awards following the appointments of Connecting Cambridgeshire, Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership and the Department for International Trade who have already put their name to the scheme.

SCDC has worked with businesses and residents to set the Council’s agenda for the next five years. Working with partners to ensure new transport and digital infrastructure supports and strengthens communities is at the top of that list.

South Cambridgeshire is open for business and the Council knows that its approach to growth must sustain prosperity.

Some of the key outcomes for the Council include making sure, through the Greater Cambridge City Deal, that the Cambridge Sub-Region is a super-connected ‘Smart City Region’ of the future, the Greater Cambridge region continues to thrive economically and all residents and businesses have access to superfast broadband.

SCDC’s support of the CDA’s is indicative of its mission to embrace the digital sector and develop opportunities for people and businesses within its area.

Cllr Nick Wright, South Cambridgeshire District Council’s deputy leader and cabinet member for corporate and customer services, said: “We are really pleased to have teamed up with CDA. The digital agenda is vitally important to us, our communities and businesses and we look forward to celebrating their successes with them. As a Council we have made great progress in using technology to help us provide the best services possible to local people but we know there is still much more to be done on our digital agenda.”

The Cambridgeshire Digital Awards is the first and only scheme of its kind solely to celebrate the online achievements of businesses, charities and schools from across the county.

Robin Bailey, Chairman of the CDA16 Judging Panel said: “We are delighted to welcome South Cambridgeshire District Council into the Digital Awards.

“Their commitment to supporting the digital services available in their district chimes perfectly with our mission to recognise the achievements of progressive businesses, charities and schools across the county.”

The CDAs have 15 open categories including “Blog”, “Mobile App” and “Website” and entry is open here until September 23, 2016.

CAMBRIDGESHIRE: 3 Weeks Left To Enter CDA15!

Entry for the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards is set to close in three weeks.

Applications have been pouring in for CDA15 which was launched in the Spring to celebrate the online achievements of businesses, schools and charities from across the county.

Entry closes at 5pm on September 4, 2015.

With a range of categories and an entry system which takes less than a couple minutes to complete, CDA has already built-up an incredible following.

Andy Pritchard from Premio64, the organisation behind the awards revealed he is “absolutely thrilled” by the response so far.

The CDA is backed by media partners the Cambridge News.

The categories include “Website”, “Responsive Website”, “Blog”, “Use of Social Media for Business”, “Use of Video for Business” and “School, Education or Charity Website”.

Gold, silver and bronze awards will be presented at the Winners’ Evening in November, 2015.
