Nominate a rising star – Nominations now closed

The judges convene before the event to review the nominations, so try to include as much information in the written submissions as possible. The judges will refer to the criteria below to guide their decision-making, so use it to shape your submission(s). Each written submission should be at least 600 words and a maximum of 1,000 words. There is no cost to enter or restrictions on the number of people a company can nominate. A member of the Future Stars of Tech team will contact all shortlisted candidates in February.


The Future Stars of Tech awards are open to IT professionals or business professionals in the tech industry who started their career in the last eight years and have clearly demonstrated strong potential for becoming a successful technology leader. Judges will look at each candidate’s achievements and growth trajectory over the last eight years, but with a particular emphasis on accomplishments in the last 18 months. These could include contributions to successful projects (business or IT) and examples of innovation, as well as demonstrations of strong management skills, creating business value from technology, understanding the impact of technology on the business, and helping drive new innovation in the industry. Judges will also examine testimonials from customers and colleagues.

Nominations are now closed for 2018.
