The full shortlist for the Prolific North Tech Awards - which reward the best in tech talent across the North - has been revealed.

Entries were sent in by a wide range of organisations, with bases all across the region. The popular awards cover excellence in innovation across sectors including retail, healthcare, data and finance, to name just a few - and the shortlisted entries this year display the wealth of talent in the North.

The winners will be announced at a stylish awards dinner at the Manchester Hilton Hotel on February 12th. The event provides the perfect opportunity to network and celebrate achievements amongst peers, friends and colleague.

Last year's event attracted more than 400 tech professionals, who gathered to raise a glass to the best in the industry and find out who would take home a prize.

Tickets for the 2020 event are on-sale now - with early birds available until January 10th.
