This June, the SPARKies, an event that brings together the movers and shakers of the South West digital and tech scene, celebrates its sixth annual awards ceremony.
Earlier this Spring, a record number of more than 300 nominations were submitted across 16 categories. These were reviewed and scored by a selection of expert judges.
The highest scored nominations from each category created the shortlists, and we are delighted to share the news that Mind Doodle has been shortlisted for the Best Digital Design award.
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at Motion’s Marble Factory on 21 June 2018. The venue is Bristol’s biggest nightclub, which is a matrix of Victorian warehouses along with a cobbled open-air terrace, recently voted the 19th best nightclub in the world.
To begin the event, Mind Doodle will be showcasing our digital tool in the expo area, which is a new feature for the SPARKies that introduces a hands-on experience of tech from the South West, ranging from robotics and haptic technology to VR and AI.
During the ceremony, our team will be keeping our fingers crossed for a win and we’re humbled to be sharing the experience with some of the best tech companies in the West.
Tess Coughlan-Allen, Marketing Manager of Mind Doodle said:
“As a start up, to be shortlisted for the Best Digital Design award at the SPARKies is a real achievement and a milestone that we would never have expected to reach so soon, had it not been for the dedication and passion from everyone involved.
This will be our first time at the SPARKies, and before the awards ceremony begins, we’ll be showcasing Mind Doodle in the expo zone, which is making its debut at the SPARKies this year too.
The encouragement and support from our connections, both in the South West and across the globe, has been incredibly valuable for us and we can’t wait to share our first evening at the SPARKies with such great company.
During the last 12 months, we’ve been on an incredible journey, but the most exciting thing is that this is just the beginning.”
Richard Hill, CEO of Mind Doodle said:
“TechSPARK is a great organisation. I’ve personally attended several of their events, in particular the business breakfasts. The South West has a vibrant tech scene; TechSPARK does valuable work to promote and support companies like Mind Doodle. There are myriad tech companies in the region, so to be recognised for the Best Digital Design award is something I’m very proud of. The other companies in our category are very strong, I appreciate that we are in esteemed company.
I’m very much looking forward to the evening. We’re also going to have a stand, which is new for the SPARKies, and a great innovation. It will give us a chance to connect with local companies and introduce Mind Doodle to a new audience.”
