The SPARKies awards – the best in tech in the West

The SPARKies Awards

Welcome to #TheSPARKies Awards!

The digital and tech awards for the West is heading back to Bristol in 2020.

For the 9th consecutive year, we'll be shining a light on the very best people, products and companies that make up the tech sector in Bristol, Bath and the broader West of England region. We can't wait!

SPARKies Award Ceremony 2021

The SPARKies will be back October 14th, at 7pm. We'll be selling tickets soon! This year we're back in Bristol and super hopeful (🤞) that we'll be meeting in person! 

There are 17 categories representing the brilliance of the tech scene in the West up for grabs. We're celebrating the entire local tech spectrum - including those wonderful people and companies that work tirelessly to support and grow the cluster.

Get Involved!

The SPARKies is about community rather than profit, but in order for it to be a success, it needs the support of sponsors from the local networks, professional services & tech industries who in return get a great amount of brand awareness in the region, especially amongst the tech and SME community.  There are a couple of ways to get involved, including sponsoring an individual award, and sponsorship is a great way to connect with - and give back to - the local tech community.

Like to get more involved with the tech community in the South West? Why not join the volunteer SPARKies team in 2021 to help run the awards - it's a lot of fun! Fancy being a sponsor? All contributions help to make SPARKies THE go-to event to celebrate the best of tech in the West.

If you want to get involved with the SPARKies in any way please drop us a line on We look forward to hearing from you! TechSPARK and The SPARKies is not-for-profit and income is used to strengthen our community.
