We are delighted to announce this year’s Search Industry Awards, celebrating the best search innovations of 2021. Presented by the Information Retrieval Specialist Group of the BCS, these awards recognize people, projects, and organizations that have excelled in the design of search and information retrieval products and services. If you know of any people, projects, or products that deserve recognition, let us know by submitting a nomination. Alternatively, if you’re involved with something special yourself, you can submit an application today. Nominations will remain open until 1st November. Winners will receive a framed certificate and a public listing on the IRSG Awards site.
This year we are offering five awards:
- Best search user experience (of a web site / mobile app / information resource, etc.)
- Most promising start up (or new enterprise)
- Best open source project (of all shapes & sizes)
- Search professional of the year (who is your unsung hero?)
- Best paper / presentation (at Search Solutions 2021)
The last award is open only to presenters at Search Solutions, and will be judged on the day of the event. For all others, apply today!
Winners will be selected by our panel of judges (details to be announced shortly).
The awards ceremony will take place during Search Solutions on 24 November 2021.
