3 October 2018 in Awards & goodstuff
Superdoodle has been shortlisted as a finalist for the ‘Most Innovative Use of Video or Animation’ award at the 2018 Digital Entrepreneur Awards (DEAs), which are the only national awards dedicated to championing digital entrepreneurialism and innovation across the UK.
The Digital Entrepreneur website states; “The DEAs are the only awards of their kind, recognising entrepreneurs from across the country who have achieved online business excellence. The awards celebrate not only the high-profile websites and leaders driving online commerce but the silent heroes who develop the systems that change the online landscape and shape our digital future.”
Katy Ross, Superdoodle’s co-founder and director, said: “We are so pleased to hear the news that we’ve been nominated for such an exciting award. Superdoodle is a young company, and we’ve been working hard to create eye-catching, heartfelt designs – it’s a thrill when someone doffs their cap to us, acknowledging the hard work and enthusiasm we put in to each project. We’ve got an amazing team who all love what they do, and I think this shows in their output. We’re very humbled to be in the same category as some amazing companies – thank you to all the judges!”
The finalists beat off competition from hundreds of businesses that entered, across 20 award categories. The awards, now in their 14th year, cover categories encompassing every component of today’s online business ecosystem – from enigmatic leadership to forward-thinking development and cutting-edge creative.
Previous winners of the awards span a range of sectors, from retail giants like Sainsbury’s and Mothercare to smaller, more agile digital specialists like Social Chain and Clicky Media.
Among the judging panel are Jacqueline de Rojas, president of techUK and chair of the Digital Leaders Board; Heather Waters, enterprise manager at NatWest; Vikas Shah, CEO of Swiscot Group; Susie Ma, founder and CEO of Tropic Skincare; Naomi Timperley, co-founder of Tech North Advocates and chair of Capital Pilot; and Jon Woodall, founder & managing director of Space 48.
One of the UK’s true tech heavyweights joins the judging panel this year. President of techUK and chair of Digital Leaders, Jacqueline de Rojas serves on the government’s Digital Economy Council and is an advisor to a number of fast-moving tech companies.
Commenting on the DEAs, de Rojas said: “We are known as a nation of innovators and of entrepreneurs. It is quite simply a privilege to judge the technologies and innovators at the frontier of change.
“The UK is a nation of technological significance and shining a light on entrepreneurship in this space is a way of investing in our digital future.
“I have seen the smallest of changes make the biggest of differences and I am delighted to see the creativity of our digital entrepreneurs fixing real-world problems that are worth solving.”
