Blacknight Sponsors web awards

This October, Ireland’s finest websites will be battling for the title of Best in their category for the 2015 Web Awards, a unique event where anyone can be nominated and win.

Every year, the Web Awards founder Damien Mulley calls for anyone who believes they have the best website in Ireland to compete in a fun, informal celebration of what makes the Irish Internet great. All nominees are welcome and highly eligible regardless of size or financial capacity. The awards honour the best work produced by the Irish Internet community, ask no entry fee for nominees and promise one of the most irreverent, fun filled nights for the tech industry MC’d by Rick O’Shea. 

Leading Irish domain and hosting company, Blacknight will join forces once again as a double category sponsor and media partner. Blacknight specifically encourage nominations in the categories of Best Website of a Startup and Best SME Website – Large (21 employees or more). 

“We encourage anyone who believes they have the best Startup website or best Large SME website to nominate themselves for the 2015 Web Awards,” Says Blacknight CEO Michele Neylon. “Ireland has one of the richest Internet communities in the world with some of the most innovative, striking and clever websites. Don’t be shy about saying you’re the best – we certainly aren’t.” 

To add to the spirit of competition, this year the Web Awards is introducing a new category: most influential Irish website since 2000. Anyone who feels like their website has what it takes to be crowned most influential Irish website are encouraged to submit their nomination.

Nominations close August 20, 2015 and designated judges will score all sites that are submitted. Those submitting nominations must also provide a contact email address along with the reason for nomination. 

The nomination list will be posted September 2, 2015. The semi-finalist list will be posted September 16, 2015 with the finalist announced on the 29th of September.
