The nominations are in and our final shortlist is here for the SPARKies tech and digital awards 2021. As usual, the array of talent and achievements from across the board makes us super proud to be a part of such a vibrant community.

Across 17 award categories, our Judges have been deliberating over some of the most creative and innovative projects, companies, experiences and designs - as well as some of the most dedicated people in the region - all deserving of recognition for the work they've done to support and grow the South West tech cluster.

The SPARKies shortlist

Each of the awards was closely contested with the nominees deemed of very high quality, with the People's Choice Award voting set to open this week.

The final award winners will be announced at the SPARKies back in Bristol on 14 October @ 7pm!

The judges have blindly scored their selection of awards with no help from one another - or from us - and the results are in, so check out the shortlist for each award below (companies are listed alphabetically).
