Time is running out for creative and digital firms to enter this year’s Mainframe Awards, which are organised by Mainframe from QUAD.

Created to highlight the digital and creative community in Derby and Derbyshire, the Mainframe Awards will be celebrating their fifth year in April.

Event organisers are encouraging any creative people or businesses across the county to take part, with Monday 31 January the deadline for entries

People can nominate themselves, their colleagues or friend and their communities.

Mainframe have tried to make the awards as accessible as possible with 10 categories to choose from, allowing anyone from the broad spectrum of creative industries to take part.

They are: Make and Trade, Putting Derby and Derbyshire on the Map, Best Digital/Creative Upscaler, Emerging Digital Creative Star (under 25), Creativity for Good, Best Digital/Creative Start Up, Digital Disruptor, Mainframe Unsung Hero, Best Local Network and Digital/Creative Ambassador of the Year.
