Rising Star Awards 2020 - Nomination Form

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.

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? Or are you a rising star yourself who should be recognised?

If so, we are ready to celebrate their/your achievements at the first ever 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.

How to nominate

 Simply complete some basic details about the person or company you are nominating via our online portal. You can also nominate yourself. Nominations must be supported with a statement of a maximum 250 words.

Once nominations have been received, the nominee will be contacted and forwarded a list of questions that they will be required to complete in order to progress to the first round of judging. Nominees will be judged on their achievements during the 2019/2020 year.
