Atticus is thrilled to be shortlisted as a finalist for the Best Use of VR and AR at the 2018 Digital Entrepreneur Awards (DEAs). 

The DEAs are the only national awards dedicated to championing digital entrepreneurialism and innovation across the UK. Atticus was shortlisted to the final 5 from 82 nominations.

Atticus Digital is a next generation creative agency, focused on enabling governments, businesses and brands to succeed in the digital marketplace by Making Complex Simple™

Martin McCabe, MD said “This nomination means so much to us because the marketplace is growing very rapidly in this sector. Although we are pioneers in this technology, many other companies have started up over the last couple of years, making it even tougher to be recognised. The whole team at Atticus Digital is honoured to be selected”.

The projects that caught the eye of the judges were our VR Health & Safety Training and our AR Training App, both for EDF Energy.

The awards, now in their 14th year, cover categories encompassing every component of today’s online business ecosystem – from enigmatic leadership to forward-thinking development and cutting-edge creative. Categories include Social Media Campaign of the Year, Most Innovative use of Video or Animation and the coveted Digital Entrepreneur of the Year award.

The finalists beat off competition from hundreds of businesses that entered, across 20 award categories.

Previous winners of the awards span a range of sectors, from retail giants like Sainsbury’s and Mothercare to smaller, more agile digital specialists like Social Chain and Clicky Media.

Among the judging panel are Jacqueline de Rojas, president of techUK and chair of the Digital Leaders Board; Heather Waters, enterprise manager at NatWest; Vikas Shah, CEO of Swiscot Group; Susie Ma, founder and CEO of Tropic Skincare; Naomi Timperley, co-founder of Tech North Advocates and chair of Capital Pilot; and Jon Woodall, founder & managing director of Space 48.

One of the UK’s true tech heavyweights joins the judging panel this year. President of techUK and chair of Digital Leaders, Jacqueline de Rojas serves on the government’s Digital Economy Council and is an advisor to a number of fast-moving tech companies.

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.

“I have seen the smallest of changes make the biggest of differences and I am delighted to see the creativity of our digital entrepreneurs fixing real-world problems that are worth solving.”
