Digital Business Ireland, the voice of the digital commerce sector, and one of the country’s leading financial service providers, Permanent TSB, have announced the launch of their annual National Digital Awards – following on from the success of the inaugural Awards programme last year. Spanning 19 categories, the Awards will recognise the very best in digital and will reward innovators across a range of sectors – all of whom have demonstrated the power of digital enterprise.

An independent judging panel will adjudicate, and Awards will be presented to the category winners and runners up at a reception in Dublin on Thursday 3rd of February 2022. The closing date for entries is 27th November 2021 – though early entry is advised.
