New categories added to the Tech Awards


Nominations are now open for the second Tech Awards, and two new categories have been added: the Security Implementation of the Year Award and an extra Technology Student of the Year prize.

A total of 12 awards will be presented on 17 October and organisers are hoping to increase the number of entries from last year’s 76.

Tony Moretta, CEO of Digital Jersey, said: “The inaugural Jersey TechAwards were one of the standout highlights of last year for me. It was a rare moment for all those working in the sector to stop and truly take stock of the great work that’s happening in the island.”

“The addition of two new awards for this year means we can showcase the groundbreaking efforts being made to put information security high on the agenda. And, in the year we open our new Digital Skills Academy, I am delighted we have two chances to highlight the work of technology students - our next-generation workforce.”

Chris Clark, the CEO of Prosperity 24/7, sponsor of the event, said last year’s event was "a true celebration of the thriving digital sector, an evening of reflection, reward and acknowledgement for every key player in the critical Industry which is pervasive across all other sectors today."

Paul Dutot, Chairman of BCS Jersey, another sponsor for the event added: “BCS Jersey is once again proud to support The Jersey Tech Awards that will showcase the innovation and expertise of Jersey’s Digital sector. The additional focus on security and the work of students will surely expand upon last year’s success.”

The categories for the Jersey TechAwards are:

  • Digital Company of the Year
  • Technology Project of the Year
  • Best Use of Technology in Education
  • Technology Student of the Year - Senior

Mr Moretta added: “Last year’s launch event was a who’s who of Jersey’s technology leaders, creatives and pioneers, as well as those at the very start of their digital careers. This year’s ceremony is set to be even bigger, with more categories, and more chances to shine. Get nominating.”
