Digital Event Awards shortlist announced

by Olivia Powell

The shortlist for the inaugural Digital Event Awards has been announced.

Organised by Mash Media, the new awards scheme was launched to “recognise the outstanding achievements of an industry that has been badly affected by the pandemic”, with the vast majority of live events banned since March last year.

Duncan Siegle, awards director, said: “The number and quality of the entries we have received has exceeded all expectations.  Almost 200 pieces of work have been sent in, spanning the whole events sector and this highlights just how much the events landscape has been affected.

“We will be announcing registration to the digital event this week (commencing 15 February). The event is free to attend so please register and attend on 18 March. It is a freeview event and will demonstrate the talent and quality of the industry we are so proud to support.  As always, we could not run this event without the support of the industry and from our headline sponsors, Showcase, Collaborate Global and iVent, as well as event sponsors Scoocs, Virtway Events and Visions Events.”

Dr James Morgan, chair of the judging panel, added: “Having taken part in quite an extensive shortlisting process, the quality of work on display is outstanding and will be a real test for the winners. It further demonstrates the talent and agility of the industry.”
