The Annual IIA Dot ie Net Visionary Awards, now in their 16th year are a mainstay of the internet business calendar. Over the years, we have recognised the vision, entrepreneurship and innovation of leaders such as Michele Neylon, Eamon Leonard, Jerry Kennelly, Dylan Collins, Pat Phelan, Ray Nolan and many more.
The Annual IIA Net Visionary Awards will be on Friday September 26th -the anchor Awards of Awards Season 2014.
The Awards have been sold out events for the past three years and given the enthusiastic response to last year’s venue, this year will be no different. The Smock Alley Banquet Hall was so stunning that we are returning!
There are 15 categories and each has been assigned its own judge. The judges will decide the shortlist for their category. We will then announce the shortlist.
Only FIVE categories will face the public vote. The remaining TEN categories will be decided by the private votes of the full judging panel. The five categories that face the public vote are marked ‘public vote’ and voting will open after the shortlist is announced.
Categories Winning trophies is nice but the problem is that no one really gets to see them and besides, inanimate objects can’t really convey the essence of your brilliance in quite the same way as some carefully chosen words.
Winning an IIA Dot ie Net Visionary Award means you’re the best at what you do but not in the run of the mill ‘best’ kind of way but in a pretty stand-out innovative kind of way. So we’ve taken some time and come up with quirky and compelling titles as the cool tag lines for your brand. Check them out here.
