It has been a pretty challenging year so far with social distancing, lockdowns and most recently freezing cold weather cutting short much-needed outdoor get togethers with family and friends.
But despite the many personal challenges we have all faced, the IT channel has continued to outperform many other industries as the demand for technology continues to grow.
As a result, there have been some amazing examples of collaboration with customers both in the public and private sector that need celebrating. There have been many examples of where employees have gone above and beyond their normal remit to ensure services are delivered to customers when they need them most.
And these companies and people deserve recognition. What better way of doing this than telling us all about it in a Sales and Marketing Awards entry?
With 23 categories to choose from, including our brand new ‘Over and Above' awards for outstanding work by individuals or teams, there really is something in there for everyone.
Once submitted, the entries will go through a first-stage judging process where the shortlist will be announced.
Then the shortlisted entries will go on to be judged by our panel of expert industry judges - watch them share some top hints and tips here.
Once judging is finished, our winners will be announced in July. Stay tuned to Channelweb for more information on the Awards ceremony.
Entries must be submitted by 5pm on Friday 9 April. It is definitely not too late to shout your successes from the rooftops.
For hints and tips on crafting your entry, don't forget to check out the criteria and top tips - all designed to help.
The very best of luck to you all and we look forward to receiving your entries!
