Final extension for the techies 2019 - 5pm BST Tuesday 9th April


Now in its fourth successful year, the techies is all about recognising and celebrating the best in the UK tech sector - be it a product, project, team or individual.

Over the past few days we have had a glut of fantastic entries coming in from brilliant startups to teams within large, innovative UK organisations, and it's not too late for you to get in on the action.

Due to a high volume of further extension requests, the submission deadline for the techies award entries has been extended once again to Tuesday 9th April 2019 at 5pm, so enter now to be in with a shot! This really is the last call, we can not accept any entries post deadline.

All finalists will be invited to the techies awards night at Sway Bar, London on Thursday 9th May where the winners will be announced and the best and brightest in UK tech will be able to rub shoulders over drinks and canapés.

Across 16 categories, the techies is the perfect way to recognise the hard work of your team, with awards going to forward-thinking individuals and companies that are pushing the boundaries in everything from artificial intelligence and fintech, to security and cloud technology.
