Entry into the Learning Technologies Awards 2017 is open and is expected to attract some of the most recognisable, memorable, and life-changing elearning initiatives anywhere in the the world. The Learning Technologies Awards are internationally recognised and open to organisations of all sizes.

Independently judged to the highest and most rigorous of standards, there is no greater recognition of the hard work and commitment to elearning than winning a Learning Technologies Award.

“To enter an award organisations first need to choose their categories and register before the June 30 deadline. Written submissions then follow in July, followed by the judging process and the winners will be celebrated at a glittering gala evening at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London,” explained Mark Penton of CloserStill Media.

“Reaching the shortlist is really something to shout about. Winning is proof to your, clients, colleagues and rivals that you're at the top of your game – a shining example to the learning and technology world,” added Penton.

There are 16 awards categories to choose from, including:

Best learning technologies project, excellence in the design of learning content, best use of mobile learning and best learning game. The complete list of categories for the 2017 programme is available via the Learning Technologies Awards website.

Learning Technologies Awards 2017 sponsors include Brightwave Group and Highfield E-Learning and further sponsorship opportunities are available from the organisers: enquiries by email to Kate Vose,
