What Award Finalists Say

These awards shine an important spotlight on the industry and the ceremony is a great event”

Jamie Baulch, Olympic Champion and STA judge


Of course you need to make sure you are investing your marketing budget wisely, so here are just three reasons you should be putting your work forward.

  • Our judges all volunteer to work with us because they want to know what organizations like yours are doing and we only ask them to look at entries relevant to their areas of expertise. Consequently, they are potential buyers of, or investors in your business so make sure they see your work.
  • Shortlistees as well as winners tell us that success in the awards directly converts into tangible business returns. These include reduced sales cycles, quicker inbound investment, improved staffing and elevated client discussions – whatever you want to achieve, having the Sports Technology Awards mark of excellence associated with your brand is a shrewd move.
  • Entries start at £245 +VAT (less for selected SMEs) which not only affords you the awards process, you enjoy additional exposure through The Hub video portal, exposure to the awards’ database and digital network, and ad hoc PR opportunities presented by the PR team.
