The Jersey TechAwards celebrate the very best of Jersey’s digital talent, creativity and entrepreneurship.

The Jersey TechAwards

The 2021 TechAwards aim to celebrate a wide range of digital and technological accomplishments from local students and educators, to innovative organisations, projects and digital pioneers.

Watch this space for updates on the 2021 awards including this year’s categories and sponsors.

The categories for the 2021 awards are:
Company

This award will go to the organisation that the judges consider to be one of the leading lights among entries for the awards overall. The winning entry will be an organisation that develops and sells technology or helps others to use technology extensively and effectively and is successful largely or entirely as a result.

Nominees can be any organisation, but the judges are interested specifically in the successful use of technology, not just the overall success of the organisation.

Start-up

This will be a technology-oriented organisation that has existed for only a short time but which despite its relative youth, demonstrates success so far and promise for the future. Success can be measured in any way – for example spectacular financials, strong reputation, major team expansion or anything else which demonstrates strong and sustainable growth.

Organisations must have existed in their current form since 1 June 2020. Entrants that existed prior to this but in a significantly different form are welcome to enter, but the judges’ decision to include or exclude an entry is final.

Fintech

Entrants for this award will be either: (a) any kind of innovative technology used in the finance industry; or (b) finance technology used in any industry, financial or otherwise. The winning entrant will have used technology to make a significant difference in the circumstances in which it was used.

Nominees must be activities that have been completed since 1 June 2020. Multi-phase activities that are part-complete may be entered but will be judged on progress so far, not projected future progress.

Creative

The winner of this award will go to an organisation that has used technology in an innovative and creative way with a result that has made a significant difference to the organisation, or its clients and/or the way it or its clients works.

Entrants can range from a company who has implemented an innovative use of technology to improve efficiencies to someone who has run an influential digital marketing campaign.

Student

The winner will be a school pupil who shows exceptional aptitude, ability and/or interest in technology, up to and including Year 11, i.e. GSCE level, as well Year 12 and over or a college/university student, a non-techie re-skilling into a tech subject, even someone technical who is extending their knowledge in an exciting way. Anyone actively studying technology in any way is eligible to be nominated.

Nominees must have been registered students of a recognised education establishment or training organisation since September 2020.

Teacher

This award will go to the person who has made the most significant contribution this year to technology teaching in Jersey. It could go, for example, to a teaching assistant helping primary school pupils take their first exciting steps in technology, or it could equally go to (say) a lecturer bringing degree-level knowledge and beyond to older students, a volunteer providing technology education in their spare time, or someone who provides teaching/training on a commercial basis. Anyone who teaches technology in some way is eligible for this award.

Nominees must be people who work directly with their students to teach them technology subjects and who have done since September 2020.

Leadership

This award is for the person who has shown the most effective leadership of a technology company or function. They may be leading a technology company, but they could equally be someone leading technological functions or projects within an organisation that’s not inherently a tech company.

Any individual may be nominated for this award.

Sustainability

This award is aimed at organisations that have used technology in a way that has made a significant, measurable, positive impact in a “green” sense. Examples include automation, reductions in wastage, energy or fuel savings, improvements in environmental health and improvements in environmental awareness. The award is open both to organisations whose purpose is to promote and generate sustainability and to any organisation that has undertaken a project with a significant sustainability benefit.

Any organisation may be nominated for this award. Nominees must be activities that have been completed since 1 June 2020. Multi-phase activities that are part-complete may be entered but will be judged on progress so far, not projected future progress.

Cyber Security

This award will go to an organisation that the judges consider the most impressive with regard to their activities in cyber security. There could be a focus on a particular project (e.g. the implementation of a new security solution or regime), but equally the organisation’s overall cyber security approach may be the subject of the nomination with no reference to a specific project.

Any organisation may be nominated for this award.

Productivity

The winner in this category will be an individual or organisation that has used technology in an innovative way to demonstrably increase productivity of an organisation, either one they are working for or one they are advising. Productivity could be measured in any way, but the winning entry will be expected to show comparable data – it’s up to the person writing the entry to show the judges why the business deserves to beat its peers to the award.

Any organisation or individual may be nominated for this award. Nominees must be activities that have been completed since 1 June 2020. Multi-phase activities that are part-complete may be entered but will be judged on progress so far, not projected future progress.

Public Sector/Charity

This award is aimed at any public sector or organisation that has used technology to benefit the public or charity sector by doing something new, innovative and/or clever to make a genuine difference for the public service or charitable sector in Jersey.

Any team or department within the public sector or charitable organisation may be nominated for this award.
