Welcome to the WalesOnline Digital Awards 2017

Brand new to Wales The Digital Awards brought to you by WalesOnline demonstrate the nation’s digital vibrancy.

They showcase the inspiring work of individuals and companies across Wales who are at the cutting edge of digital business. They recognise the excellence that exists within a whole industry that is globally, socially and commercially relevant to Wales’ technological revolution.

Wales is a hub for digital excellence and a leader in innovation. Last year’s Tech Nation Report identified Cardiff & Swansea as clusters for expertise in the sector.

The Awards

The awards will allow relatively mature companies to show off their work as well as highlight the important embryonic work being carried out by imaginative companies and individuals. You may enter as many categories as you wish and multiple entries are permitted for different projects.



We have eleven categories designed to highlight the key areas of growth and development in our digital industry. The awards reflect the wide scope of skills being employed in the region, whether that be technological development or digital delivery.
