As the DCD>Awards enter their 13th year, DCD remain committed to recognizing the fantastic array of projects, innovations and crucially, individuals that make up our ever-growing industry. The global awards program gives us a chance to reflect and recognize the fantastic achievements of all those who continue to ensure our sector moves forward and meet the ever-growing demands of the digitized world.

Our expert team of independent judges have been kept incredibly busy with over 400 entries globally to whittle down and finalize the shortlist in each of our 16 categories. The winners will be revealed at our annual Awards Gala in December.

“The annual ceremony represents a fantastic opportunity to reward, celebrate and empower the teams and individuals driving our industry forward,” said Heather Dooley, Global Director, Business Operations, Learning and Tools, Google Data Centers.
