Outstanding Achievement Award - TO BE ANNOUNCED ON THE NIGHT

 

Once again, congratulations to all those who made the shortlist. It is no easy feat. 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Those shortlisted in the 'big five' categories ONLY - Vendor of the Year, Distributor of the Year (sub £250m), Distributor of the Year (£251m+), Reseller of the Year (sub £100m) and Reseller of the Year (£101m+) will now be asked to submit a further short video for the judges to consider as outlined in the Ts&Cs (see point 19).

Due to ongoing Covid-related challenges, it has been decided that judging day in October will be virtual again this year, which means those that would normally be asked to attend in the afternoon for a face-to-face presentation to the judges, will now be asked to submit a short video instead.

We will be releasing some guidelines on the video very shortly - but it needs to be no longer than five minutes and really doesn't have to be anything overly complicated - the content of the video is going to be more important than the look. More to be revealed shortly. 

We are also still planning for the awards to go ahead in physical form on 11 November, so again please do keep your eye on Channelweb for more information.
