If you've got a cloud success story to share, now is the time to share it today is the last day the early bird discount for the UK Cloud Awards is valid. 

Although the window for entries is open until 22 February, you can benefit from a big discount on the application fee if you get your submissions in today. 

Instead of paying the standard entry fee per application of 170+VAT, if you get your entries now you'll pay just 99+VAT. 

Now in their sixth year, the awards - which are hosted by the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) in association with Cloud Pro - showcase and celebrate the great and the good of the UK's cloud industry.

The awards will take place on 16 May 2019 at the prestigious County Hall in London.

Entries will be scrutinised by an expert panel of judges, headed up by cloud expert Jez Back as head judge.

"The UK Cloud Awards have rightly earned their spot as one of the most credible and innovative events in the technology awards calendar, so I am delighted to assume the mantle as head judge this year," Back said.

"To ensure that we can keep pace with the industry we have included new categories focused on next-generation technologies, such as AI, and emerging techniques such as DevOps. We also wish to look to the future, so have introduced a new individual category to showcase the diversity and emerging talent of our future leaders by creating Best Cloud Newcomer."

  • Most Innovative Enterprise Product

Alex Hilton, CEO of the Cloud Industry Forum, added: "The UK Cloud Awards celebrate all the innovation this industry can offer and the whole event, from the number of attendees to the number of nominations, grows year-on-year. The Awards' popularity owes much to our stringent and entirely independent judging process, designed to ensure that we can really identify the best of the best. 2018 was a record year for the UK Cloud Awards, and I have no doubt that we can raise the bar again this year."
