Search Industry Awards

We are delighted to launch this year's Search Industry Awards, celebrating the best search innovations of 2017. Presented by the Information Retrieval Specialist Group of the BCS, these awards recognize people, projects, and companies that have excelled in the design of search and information retrieval products and services.

If you know of any companies, individuals, projects, or products that deserve recognition, let us know by submitting a recommendation. Alternatively, if you're involved with something special yourself, you can submit an application today.

Categories


This year we are offering three awards:

  • Best search project
  • Most promising start up
  • Best paper / presentation (at Search Solutions 2017)
The third award is open only to presenters at Search Solutions, and will be judged on the day. For all others, apply today!

  • Charlie Hull (Managing Director, Flax)
  • Rene Kriegler (Search & NLP Consultant)
  • Ilona Roth (Global Head of Onsite Search, RS Components)
