We posted some details of this year’s web awards the other evening, but this was before the official press release had arrived ..

The event organiser, Damien Mulley, has a very positive outlook for this year’s event:

For our 5th birthday we hope to see over 400 people attend the event and see another increase in the nominations. This is going to be the biggest celebration of the web in Ireland this year and we’d love to see all our past records broken

So here’s a few more details….

  • the Irish Web Awards celebrate 5 years in existence this year!
  • Rick O’Shea will be the MC again
  • Nominations are free
  • Tickets for the event in the Mansion House are 30 euro (and based on past experience you’ll get more than your money’s worth!)
  • Realex Payments are the headline sponsors. Other sponsors include Wolfgang Digital, Poll Daddy, IQ Content and National College of Ireland
