The UK National Innovation Awards (the Nationals) were launched in 2016 by Directors Club United Kingdom to recognise technology innovations and their impact on customer experience, operational performance and employee engagement.

The Nationals are open to all technology developers worldwide, as long as their solution or product is available for purchase in the UK (directly or via resellers).

Past winners and finalists are celebrated permanently on our Honours Board.

Uniquely, our Judging Faculty is drawn from the leadership of the functions and divisions pertinent to each award category. Judges are also members of Directors Club United Kingdom.

We do not recruit judges from consultancies, suppliers, resellers or technology vendors.

The UK National Innovation Awards competition has been an all-digital process long before the pandemic forced all events to become virtual.

Back in 2016, we wanted to reinvent the cost-model for award programme participation, and at the same time minimise the environmental impact associated with traditional award-giving.

Our end-to-end, all-digital process not only produces as-near-as-possible no environmental impact, it also removes all the costs typically associated with award-giving, including category entry, gala prizing giving attendance, travel and accommodation, and time out of the office.

Our 2020 competition only suffered a minor delay as the UK entered a national lockdown.
