Success and the channel go hand-in-hand.
After all, experts have been talking about the death of the channel for as long as I can remember. However it has not only survived, but thrived.
So what better way to shout about your success, and also reward the people behind that success, than by entering these awards?
This year, they are taking place on Thursday 29 June at The Brewery in Chiswell Street, London, a little earlier than previous years, but we are giving you the maximum lead time to get an entry in.
Entries will close at 5pm on Friday 24 March, and please do be aware that there will be no deadline extensions to keep it fair for all those that got their entries in on time.
As with the channel awards, the emphasis is on quality of entry, and our two-tier judging panel will be looking to reward those companies that have demonstrated they have read the criteria, and really know how to sell themselves properly.
Of course with all awards there are the usual rumours that only those who spend money with CRN will benefit, but this is absolutely not the case - every award is given on merit.
We have launched a dedicated hub this year, which contains everything you need to know about entering the awards including all the categories, criteria, top tips, Ts&Cs and some cheekily answered FAQs.
Please try and read these, as they are meant as a guide to help you create the best and most relevant entry to each category, and ensure you are fully informed about the event itself.
There are a number of new categories this year as well - some are existing ones that have been tweaked, but others have given way for new categories that reflect the continuing changing nature of the IT channel. We are sure there is something in there for everyone this year, including a brand new category aimed at PR firms.
The hub is going to be updated regularly with new content to help you create your entry, and we also have a fun quiz coming to keep it all light-hearted. Watch out for that in the coming weeks.
Best of luck, and I know I, and all the judges, are looking forward to reading all the great entries that I know will come our way.
