“The true test of a man’s character is what he does when no one is looking” John Wooden

This year, our 25th as the UK’s leading technology community, we are celebrating our Members and Partners not just for their contribution to the Group and the Channel, but more importantly, for the way in which they embrace and portray the core values that define us.

Do the right thingtaking pride in the Group and having the integrity to always do the right thing

Better todaystriving to be the best that we can be and helping others to be the best that they can be

OpennessSharing information wherever possible, open to new ideas and points of view

Results focusedfocused on solutions and delivering results

These values shape all the decisions we make at Network Group and we hope that they are a positive influence in our wider community.

To this end, we have moved away from the popular vote model of the past, to an entry-based model that reflects the integrity of the Group and provides a level playing field for all.

Over the years we have built an event that has raised tens of thousands for charities as well as celebrating, in amazing style, the very best people and businesses in our community.

The team at NG are very proud to announce an evolution to the Network Group Awards, that will help us go even further in building an inclusive group that recognises what makes us the best community in the channel.

Testimonials and supporting information can be submitted separately.

A company/person can enter themselves or can be entered by someone else, however it is important to note that an entry will be judged on its content and quality and not by how many times it has been entered/nominated into the same category.

The entry deadline is 17.00 on the 24th January 2019.

After entry deadline (24th January 2019) your entry(s) will be passed to our panel of judges who will decide on a shortlist.

The shortlist will be announced in February. You will be notified by the NG Marketing Team if you have been shortlisted.

In order for an entry to be considered valid, you must complete all required fields on the Front Page – this can be found here. This must be included with your submission. Failure to do so will make your entry invalid and you may be contacted by a member of the NG Marketing Team to re-submit it.
