Mega Awards open

The MediaGuardian Innovation Awards (Megas) for 2011 have launched, with new award categories for mobile apps, creative uses of data and disruptive technologies.

Entries are welcomed from independent web designers, developers and entrepreneurs, as well as larger organisations.

Entrants have until Friday 3 December to submit their entries in six digital communication categories (Culture and the Arts, Lifestyle, Media & Technology, Public Sector, Campaigning and On a Budget) plus eight other categories including Open Source Technology and Digital Entrepreneur.

The Awards are open to individuals, companies or collectives (those with fewer than four staff and a turnover of less than £250,000 can enter for a reduced price). Winners will be announced in March at a presentation ceremony in central London.

Megas judge Martha Lane Fox said: “I look forward to the MediaGuardian Innovation Awards this year. The new emphasis on digital communications and technology innovations will showcase a captivating mix of new tools and future opportunities.

“Most importantly, the awards address the increasing relevance of technology and innovation across different sectors, helping more and more people with new solutions for everything from shopping online to bringing about social change.”
