Computing's Rising Star Awards 2020
Deadline for nominations = Friday 5 June
Computing is delighted to announce that nominations are open for the 2nd Rising Stars Awards which celebrate the emerging talent in digital. Here we recognise and identify the sector's future leaders, as well as shining the spotlight on the organisations and individuals that help to foster and develop new talent in the industry.
In these unprecedented times as the UK and many other countries navigate the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, many individuals will be facing a unique and unforeseen set of challenges, working from home, balancing work, coping with personal and family stress while continuing to make great contribution to their businesses.
We hope that the Rising Star Awards provide an opportunity to focus on all of the positives in people's hard work and determination over the last year. Nominating a colleague is a great way to recognise and celebrate their successes with them, which is ever so important during these challenges times.
Do you work with someone who is a rising star in the IT space? Or perhaps there’s someone in your midst who has been a role model or mentor to those who are beginning their career in the sector?
If so, we are ready to celebrate their achievements at the Computing Rising Star Awards. The Awards are not about young versus old; they are about celebrating and recognising the achievements of those at the beginning of their career in the sector - shining a spotlight on their success and championing the organisations that do the most to develop new talent in the digital industry.
The Computing Rising Stars Awards recognise and identify the sector's future leaders, as well as shining the spotlight on the organisations and individuals that help to foster and develop new talent in the industry.
