Computing has launched its inaugural Rising Star Awards to celebrate the emerging talent in digital. Here we recognise and identify the sector's future leaders, as well as shining the spotlight on the organisations and individuals that help to foster and develop new talent in the industry.

Do you work with someone who is a rising star in the IT space? Or perhaps there's someone in your midst who has been a role model or mentor to those who are beginning their career in the sector? Or are you a rising star yourself who should be recognised?

If so, we are ready to celebrate their/your achievements at the first ever Computing Rising Star Awards.

The Awards are not about young versus old; they are about celebrating and recognising the achievements of those at the beginning of their career in the sector - shining a spotlight on their success and championing the organisations that do the most to develop new talent in the digital industry.



We'd like you to tell us, in 250 words or less, why you are nominating or entering into your chosen category. Nomination deadline: 5pm, Friday 17 May
All categories are free to enter.
