About the awards

The 2017 UK City of Culture has a burgeoning reputation as the epicentre of East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire’s digital tech community. According to Tech City UK’s “Tech Nation 2017” report – the most comprehensive analysis of the UK digital tech ecosystem – Hull is helping to secure the UK’s position as the digital capital of Europe.

The city and wider East Riding are together seen as a hotspot for digital activity, with start-ups taking root here in increasing numbers and established businesses enjoying unprecedented growth.

KCOM and the Hull Daily Mail are therefore proud to host for a third year The Digital Awards, which celebrate and highlight the creative strides being made in the development and use of digital technology.

The awards will bring together the movers and shakers of the digital community for another exciting event to recognise the inspirational companies that are at the cutting edge of digital business in the region.
