Brian Williamson, managing director of Jumpstart, is supporting the business to business category and said "We encourage companies to take this opportunity to exhibit the successes they have achieved in seizing the commercial prospects offered by digital technology and the internet.

"This is an opportunity not to be missed, for businesses large and small to showcase their achievements, benefit from international exposure, demonstrating that Scotland is a world leader in pushing technological boundaries offered by digital technology and the Internet."

David Mains, director of Enigma People Solutions, said: "With such a high level of innovative and exciting projects completed each year by the talented agencies in Scotland, we would strongly encourage every digital agency to seek recognition of their hard work and excellent efforts in making the industry as successful as it is."

John Macfarlane, director of Metadigital, said "The Herald Scottish Digital Business Awards provide a window into the digital business sector in Scotland, providing a platform to showcase the emerging talent graduating from our first class colleges and universities as well as the many hard-working, creative and innovative agencies that choose to work out of Scotland.

"I think that entering and supporting the awards brings Metadigital closer to this, providing an opportunity to check out the latest talent, see what our peers are up to as well showcase our own work with an aim to gaining exposure that could attract new talent as well as customers. It's also a chance just to support the economy by being part of the process."

Jamie Cumming, commercial director from Hillington Park Innovation Centre said: "Hillington Park Innovation Centre is already home to award winning technology businesses so we understand the positive impact awards have. Entering provides a great platform to showcase your business."
