What do you need to know?
We have introduced the Innovation Awards this year to focus on fantastic Magento development. It seems only right that at our community focused event, we focus on the developers and their work. We’re hoping that everyone in the Magento community comes forward and enters, be it agencies, individuals or retailers. We only charge a minimum amount to cover costs and our awards are not for profit as is our conference.
Deadline for entries
28th September 2018
How much is it?
Entries are £50 each or free for our ‘Rising Star’ or ‘Hall of Fame’ categories using code MAGETITANSDEVELOPER. Let’s nominate those in the community that are deserving of recognition and celebrate together at our awesome afterparty!
The Awards Ceremony will be held at our annual afterparty on the 10th November at Black Dog UnderDog, 11-13 New Wakefield St, Manchester M1 5NP. 6pm until late!
