The Channel Awards 2019 shortlist is out TODAY!

Congratulations to all those who made the shortlist - your entries now go through to the second stage of judging in October

After hours of reading and deliberation, the first round judges for the CRN Channel Awards have decided the shortlist. 

Entry quality was very high this year in many instances, which made the decision very close indeed in some categories. 

Also some companies, as outlined by the Ts&Cs, have been moved into different categories, because the judges felt they stood a better chance and were more suited. You will be contacted by the CRN team if this is the case, but please do check for your name in another category if you cannot find it - you never know. 

Also those shortlisted in the Distributor/Vendor and Reseller of the year categories - of which there are five in total including Distributor sub £250m and Reseller sub £50m, will be contacted to arrange times for your presentations to the judging panels in central London on the second judging day - Thursday 10 October.  Please watch out for those emails too. 

Huge congratulations to all who made the cut, and to those that didn't quite make it, we hope you will come back stronger than ever next year.
