The Housing Technology Awards are only open to UK social housing organisations (RSLs) and other UK providers of social housing, such as ALMOs and local authorities. All entrants must be Housing Technology subscribers (you can subscribe here free of charge). Third-party organisations, such as PR companies, IT suppliers and business consultancies, wishing to enter the awards (by proxy) can only do so via their housing customers. Award entries can only be submitted via an email address associated with a housing provider’s web domain. Entries must relate to projects/teams/activities taking place within the past 18 months (as of November 2023). Please note that if the minimum number of entries for a category is not reached, the award will be discontinued. We will inform you if this is the case.
The Housing Technology Awards 2023/24 are open for entries until midnight on 12 January 2024. All entries will be acknowledged by Housing Technology by email. All entrants will be informed by email of the short-listed entries. All short-listed entrants will be informed by email with details of the final awards’ prize-giving (to take place at the Housing Technology 2024 conference on Wednesday 06 March 2024 in Nottingham).
Entrants are advised that Housing Technology’s internal team (who will short-list the entries) and our external housing panel (who will then judge the short-listed entries) will use the framework below when assessing the entries. Entrants are advised to compose their entries accordingly to highlight their achievements and details of their project as clearly as possible. Housing Technology will select and invite senior IT/business executives from UK social housing organisations (and other external organisations at Housing Technology’s discretion) Judges will not assess any entries from their own organisations nor from any organisation with which they have any commercial or corporate involvement.
The information that each entrant will need to provide is listed below; we advise entrants to consider and compose their responses and answers before entering Housing Technology’s awards portal.
The winner and runners-up in each category will be split into Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. The awards will be announced at the Housing Technology 2024 conference on Wednesday 06 March 2024 in Nottingham. Winners and runners-up will be entitled to reference their status in their internal and external communications (Housing Technology will provide artwork for marketing/social media). Short-listed entrants will be entitled to reference their short-listed status in their internal and external communications (Housing Technology will provide artwork for marketing/social media). Housing Technology will also provide editorial coverage of the awards in its bi-monthly magazine, online and via social media, including profiles of the short-listed entries and the winners and runners-up in each award category.
The winners and runners-up of each award will be required to attend the prize-giving ceremony at the Housing Technology 2024 conference in Nottingham on Wednesday 06 March 2024 (complimentary tickets will be provided for one representative from each winner and runner-up; additional tickets will be available to purchase).
All personal data provided will be subject to GDPR. The original entrants and their entries will be confidential to Housing Technology and the external judging panel.
