What are the Information Age Awards?

The Information Age Awards, now in their third year, are annual awards aimed at celebrating innovative thinking among the IT industry. They are voted by readers using an online video voting system.  Information Age is one of the UK’s leading IT B2B monthly magazines with 45,000 subscribers.  It also publishes Business XL, growthbusiness.co.uk and smallbusiness.co.uk taking the total subscriber base of Vitessemedia to 120,000.  Since every Vitessemedia subscriber is eligible to vote, SMBs account for more than half the voters involved.
