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: Lexus Offers CDA2015 Guests Top Prize!

A leading luxury car company has powered into the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards, as Associate sponsor.

Lexus Cambridge – part of the Jardines Motors Group – has signed up to back CDA 2015 and takes a leading position on the scheme.

The car dealership – based in Coldhams Lane, Cambridge – which will shortly unveil the all-new state-of-the-art Lexus RX, has built an outstanding reputation for customer service over 40 years of trading in the city.

And to celebrate their involvement with CDA 2015, Lexus Cambridge will be giving away a meal-for-two at a top eaterie in Cambridgeshire to one lucky guest at the Awards Presentation Evening, which takes place at Burgess Hall, St Ives, on November 19, 2015.

Andy Gore, General Manager at Lexus Cambridge, described linking up with CDA as a “great partnership”.

He added: “The Lexus brand is synonymous with using cutting-edge technology to deliver luxury vehicles which enhance the driving experience for our customers.

“We’ve been serving people across Cambridgeshire for four decades and it is an immense pleasure to do so.”

Chris Simpson, Local Business Development Manager at Lexus Cambridge added: “We are delighted to sponsor the Digital Awards and are very excited about meeting many people who are using digital platforms to drive their businesses forward.”

CDA Organiser, Iain Johnson, said the involvement of Lexus Cambridge is a “great boost” for the Awards.

“We are honoured at CDA to have the support of some great organisations and Lexus fits that description exactly,” he added.

“Not only does the Lexus brand represent innovation and aspiration, but their Cambridge centre has been at the heart of the community for decades, it’s perfect.”

Finalists of the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards 2015 – the first and only scheme to celebrate the online achievements of businesses, schools and charities from across the county, – were announced in September.

There are 12 categories contested at the Presentation Evening including “Website”, “Use of Social Media for Business” and “Mobile App”.

Tickets for the event, which includes an arrival drink, 1/3 bottle of wine per person, two-course meal and entertainment are on sale now for a limited period.

CAMBRIDGESHIRE: CDA2015 – Finalists Announced

The finalists of the first ever Cambridgeshire Digital Awards have been announced following an “outstanding” response from businesses and community organisations across the county.

Entries flooded in for the event, which is the first scheme solely to recognise the online achievements of businesses, schools and charities from across Cambridgeshire.

A total of 13 open categories are being contested including “Use of Social Media for Business”, “Mobile App” and the flagship “Website” accolade.

Gold, Silver and Bronze awards within each classification will be presented to deserving finalists at the Presentation Evening to be held at Burgess Hall, St Ives, on November 19 and tickets are on sale now at cda2015.eventbrite.co.uk

Alongside the announcement of finalists, we’re also very excited to unveil SuitRecruit as our headline sponsor. As forward-thinking bespoke sales recruitment experts, their activities dovetail perfectly with the philosophy of the CDAs, and their support brings an extra dimension to the scheme.

Cambridge News is media partner for the event – which is also backed by the Connecting Cambridgeshire, Cambridgeshire County Council and the Greater Cambridge and Greater Peterborough Enterprise Partnership.

Capricorn Media, Noise PR and designsixtyfour also sponsor the scheme.


Andy Pritchard, from Premio64, the organisation behind the CDA said: “We’ve been running the digital awards across the south-east with a hugely encouraging response, and I’m very pleased to say the communities across Cambridgeshire have also engaged with the scheme in a massively positive way.

“The quality of entries has been breathtaking – we’re now very much looking forward to the Presentation Evening, which will definitely be a night to remember!

“This is a fantastic opportunity for deserving businesses and organisations to be celebrated for their excellent online work”.

Here is the full list of finalists for the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards 2015.

The winner of the 13th category, not listed below, will be presented the “Spirit of Cambridgeshire” award at the Winners’ Evening.

It is awarded to recognise an individual or organisation which has gone above and beyond the call of duty for the promotion and betterment of the county of Cambridgeshire through their digital work.
