Categories include Social Media Campaign of the Year, Most Innovative use of Video or Animation and the coveted Digital Entrepreneur of the Year award.

Commenting on the DEAs, de Rojas said: “We are known as a nation of innovators and of entrepreneurs. It is quite simply a privilege to judge the technologies and innovators at the frontier of change. 

 “The UK is a nation of technological significance and shining a light on entrepreneurship in this space is a way of investing in our digital future.
