The Digital DNA awards celebrated our diverse range of talent in Northern Ireland across the Digital scene, from E–commerce to Fintech, Media and Digital & Creative. Right here in Belfast we have local companies winning highly innovative international projects and the DNA awards amplify our strong message that Northern Ireland is building a world class, highly skilled and Agile Talent pool.
This week we a looking at our new categories – Best Tech for Good and Deal of the Year.
The closing date for the Digital DNA Award Nominations is Thursday 31 January 2019
Digital DNA are proud to announce two new categories to the range of Company categories for 2019. We identified from previous years the need to recognise the contribution made to the Tech for Good sector and the outstanding achievements made for the local economy in Northern Ireland.
Best Tech for Good Innovation
According to Nominet Trust, there are 3 key values in what they call the ‘Triple Helix model’. Social Value, User Value and Financial Value and that by harnessing the power of digital technology we can improve lives and communities.
The winner of the Best Tech for Good Innovation will be a company or organisation that has developed a socially responsible and innovative technological response in the last 12 months, to an issue that is affecting wider society in Northern Ireland.
The judges will be particularly interested to see how the initiative addresses particular concerns within society, demonstrating levels of engagement throughout the organisation. Examples could be initiatives engaging with minority groups, addressing mental health concerns within society, programs engaging with young people or initiatives to help wider society.
Deal of the Year
Deal of the year is aimed at recognising the achievements of Local and Global business who have a direct impact on the economy of Northern Ireland, increasing our reputation as a “Tech Hub” and by providing new, exciting opportunities.
The judges will be looking for an exceptional local company who over the past 12 months have been extremely successful in winning outstanding business for the Northern Ireland Tech sector, possibly providing jobs, expansion of business into new markets and increased revenue.
