Does your business stand out from the crowd? Have you won a particularly large deal, or ousted someone from a contract? Have you launched an innovative technology or channel initiative that has reaped amazing results? Are you… breaking the mould, daring to be different?

In such a cut-throat world, success needs to be shouted from the rooftops.  The CRN Channel Awards are the most sought after awards in the industry, recognising excellence and rewarding outstanding performance in the UK IT channel.

Entry is now open – and we want to hear from the UK Channel! Share your success with your peers and thank your teams for all their hard work by winning an industry Oscar.

The emphasis is very much on excellence and innovation this year and we’re delighted to announce five new categories for 2016.

For our resellers we have the ‘Rising Star Award’. For Vendors, there’s the ‘Vendor Innovation Award’, and also the ‘Emerging Vendor of the Year’. And for distributors, we have the ‘Distribution Innovation Award’ and ‘Emerging Technology Distributor of the Year’.

All entries must be made via our online portal and the deadline to submit is 5pm, 15 July.
