Tees Tech Awards

The region’s thriving digital sector will be celebrated when the Tees Tech Awards are held online on July 1, 2021, in association with DigitalCity and Middlesbrough Digital.

Organised by Tees Business

In association with DigitalCity and Middlesbrough Digital

The Tees Tech Awards recognise and celebrate the organisations and individuals thriving within the Tees region’s fast-growing digital sector together with the local companies driving their business through digital transformation.

  • There is no charge for entries/nominations for the Tees Tech Awards.
  • Any company (or individuals from that company) can be nominated/entered for a maximum of three categories (eg. A company may be entered into 3 categories or 2 categories plus an employee nominated for a category; or an individual nominated for 3 categories but therefore the company cannot be entered into any categories).
  • Deadline for entries to the inaugural Tees Tech Awards is 5pm on April 29, 2021.
  • The three-strong shortlist in each category will be decided by the category sponsor, with the category winners decided by scoring from a panel comprising representatives of the category sponsor and four other category sponsors. The judges’ decision is final.
  • A shortlist of three in each category will be announced on May 10.
  • Please note that the Tees Tech Awards 2021 will take place on Thursday, July 1, 2021.
  • All entrants or nominations must be based in the Tees Valley or Teesside (including Middlesbrough, Stockton, Hartlepool, Wynyard, Redcar & Cleveland, East Cleveland, Stokesley and Darlington)
  • To help you decide which categories are best for you to enter your company or nominate someone you know please take a look at the questions by click on the blue box below and selecting the different options within the dropdown menu.
    When submitting an entry or nomination, we recommend that you initially write your answers in a Word document then copy and past each one individually onto the form, as the form will not save if only partly completed.
