Prolific North Tech Awards

Last night saw the region's tech sector reunite to celebrate the winners at the Prolific North Tech Awards 2021.

Hosted at Manchester's Science and Industry Museum, the event brought together influential figures from the digital sphere to find out who was a winner.

The ceremony was compered by BBC presenter Gavin Ramjaun, who ran through the 19 categories recognising the businesses, teams and individuals taking the North's tech sector to the next level.

Special thanks should go to the Tech Awards' Associate Sponsor, Verlingue; as well as Category Sponsors Better Placed and Social Tech Communications - not to mention the illustrious judging panel.

The next awards ceremony from Prolific North will be the last of the season - the Marketing Awards where top campaigns from the year will be recognised, hosted at The Queens Hotel in Leeds.
