Companies from across the North of England that have excelled in digital technology, have just one day left to enter the 16th Big Chip Awards.

Manchester Digital organises the prestigious awards, with help from partners Digital Union, Creative Sheffield and the Manchester Digital Development Agency.

Digital companies and creative agencies from across the sector are encouraged to enter, as well as any businesses or organisations that have undertaken digital initiatives in the past year, which can include everything from a company website to a mobile app.

The 2014 Big Chip Awards are expected to be the most exciting yet – with a fantastic array of judges including Al Scott (C3: Connected Cloud Communications), Bill Thompson (journalist and media commentator), Herb Kim (Founder of the Thinking Digital conference), and Thayer Prime (Government Digital Service and celebrated games guru).

The judging panel will be chaired for the 11th year running by Michael Nutley, specialist business journalist and consultant in interactive media and marketing. This year’s special guest judge for the Anthony Wilson Original Modern Award is Neville Brody, an internationally renowned designer and one of the best-known graphic designers of his generation.

Entries are submitted online at www.bigchipawards.com . The first two entries are free. Subsequent entries cost £95. The closing date for entries is today.

Previous winners include Space 48 and Greater Manchester Police. The 2014 awards are expected to be bigger than the 2013 Awards, which attracted an impressive 246 entries.
