A judging panel of industry experts decided the winners, which were announced at a ceremony held at The Royal Institution of Great Britain on 21 November.

The award criteria highlighted the importance of “unique customer journeys” and “staying true to who you are”.

Clear winners

Judge Alex Minchin, founder and managing director of Zest Digital, said WVS emerged as the clear winner across all criteria.

“They particularly impressed with their imagery and ease of use that invites the user to discover more about their projects,” he said.
