Digital Accountancy Awards
In partnership with Practice Ignition and ACCA - Enter Now!
We’re really pleased to announce that we are launching the Digital Accountancy Awards. These brand new awards, that are being sponsored by Practice Ignition and ACCA, will celebrate the accountants in practice that are using digital technology to help improve their clients businesses and their own. Throughout the UK accounting profession, there are lots of innovative, interesting and incredible uses of digital technology and we want to reward and recognise that.
The shortlist will be announced in the next issue of Digital Accountancy Magazine and there will be a special presentation for the winners live at the Digital Accountancy Show, taking place at the new Tottenham Hotspur Football Stadium on 10th September. The awards will be split into two categories:
1. Best Digital Accountant (and Top 10 shortlist)
This award is to celebrate the best digital accountant in the UK accounting profession. We’re looking for people that have not only embraced digital technology at the core of their firm, but are using it in innovative ways to help improve their clients' businesses and their accountancy practice. This category is for partners and practice owners.
2. Best Digital Rising Star (and Top 3 shortlist)
This award is to celebrate the rising stars of the digital accounting world. This category is for somebody working in an accounting firm, that may or may not yet be qualified, and is helping to lead the digital and technological change that is taking place.
Why should you enter?
Entering these awards allows you to be celebrated for your hard work and innovation by your team members, your peers and your clients. It’s an opportunity to stand out from the crowd and highlight yourself as a member of the profession that is helping to lead change. It’s also a fantastic opportunity to meet other leading Digital Accountants and learn how they do things in their firms. Applications for the awards are open now and will remain open until the deadline on the 31st July, 2020. You can apply for yourself, or if you can think of other people that should apply, you can nominate them. The application process is designed to be easy to use and not too time consuming. Once all of the applications have been received, they will be reviewed and judged by the Digital Accountancy Advisory Board, who will choose the shortlist and winners for each category. The shortlist will be announced in the Digital Accountancy Magazine in <month> and the winners will be announced at the Digital Accountancy Show in September.
