7 Irish technology awards you may wish to enter (and 23 business)

Irish Technology awardsLast updated 15 January 2021.

All companies want to win awards. Awards provide prestige and are great for branding. They are also great for team morale and, of course, marketing. But which ones should you apply for and when are they held?

I couldn’t find a definitive list of B2B Irish technology awards, so I created one. Let me know if there are any missing and I’ll update it.

In addition to the Irish technology awards, I’ve added B2B Irish business awards and Irish marketing awards that you may also consider.

Closing dates for entries are included if available at time of posting. The month refers to the 2017 award ceremony date (unless specifically stated). As you will see, November’s the favourite! Most Irish technology awards are held in Dublin.
