Meet the influential judges for this year’s Digital City Awards


2021’s Digital City Awards are taking place on April 15th, hosted on the all-new Digital City Network and once again celebrating brilliant digital talent.

Last week, we took a look at some of the categories open at this year’s awards ceremony, which cover platforms, projects, innovations, teams and companies in the digital sphere. Categories include Startup of the Year and Best Use of Technology all the way to the Low Carbon Commitment Award.

The Digital City Awards – sponsored by Enjoy Digital – form a large part of Digital City Festival, which is hosted between April 12th and the 23rd 2021, and brings together a global audience of digital professionals. The Digital City Network, where the awards ceremony will be broadcast, will also feature an online exhibition and solutions showcase, live-streamed keynotes, on-demand masterclasses, live Q&As and more. Learn more here.


The awards reflect the diversity of important work going on in digital right now – and will recognise the most vital innovations from the past year, as well as those individuals making an impact on the industry.

The judging panel is drawn from across the sector, comprising influential figures and decisionmakers from across the UK. Figures from Tech Nation, EY, Dept and Atos are among the names who’ll whittle down the entries.

They’ll come together to select a shortlist for each category and find a winner, who’ll be announced at the ceremony in April. Read on to find out who’s on the panel.
