Today we're pleased to unveil the shortlist for the Northern eCommerce Awards 2017 – jump straight to the list here.

Delivered by Don’t Panic Events and Prolific North, the NECAs will once again celebrate the very best in ecommerce from across the North.

Judging from a large number of entries - an increase on last year's hugely successful inaugural event - took place last week, with the awards dinner taking place on Wednesday October 11th at Manchester Cathedral.

Entries were received from a considerable variety of companies, organisations and agencies and included several of the UK’s and the region’s most successful e-commerce brands.

The judging involved a rigorous two-stage process including pre-scoring to determine shortlists and a judging meeting where entries are discussed and evaluated in detail to decide the winning entries.

The Northern eCommerce Awards are once again being held in association with UKFast.
