WHILE the Irish Blog Awards and Irish Web Awards might be my response for “best industry awards night in Ireland”, one of the big awards nights for those involved in the online world in Irish business, the IIA Net Visionary Awards, are now open for nominations (and have been since Monday). This year is the 12th year of the awards.
2009 saw Damien Mulley named Best Business Blogger, Krishna De name Best Business Podcaster, Puddleducks.ie awarded Best Online Retailer with Mark French & Ciaran Bollard of Muzu.tv presented with the Overall Net Visionary Award.
The awards were realigned in the last year or two to coincide with the IIA’s annual congress and this year they will take place on May 20th at the Crowne Plaza Dublin Northwood hotel. It’s free to get nominating in one of fifteen categories open to the public, the deadline for nominations being March 26th. You can spy all the open categories here or get your nominations in here.
