This week has seen the first ever Mobile Industry Awards'digital Winners Week, celebrating the best businesses, products and people in the UK mobile sector.

It has never been so important to stop and acknowledge the companies and individuals who make the UK mobile industry such a fantastic and vibrant community to be a part of.

We came together this week to celebrate the past 12 months, but it would be remiss not to highlight the incredible contributions our industry has made during the coronavirus pandemic.

This is especially true of our network partners, who have coped admirably with the huge demand for remote working in recent months, and have also made amazing contributions to key workers in the form of donations, support and much more.

Mobile Industry Awards 2020

This year’s awards saw the largest number of submissions ever received. More than 127 entries were submitted by 61 different companies with the winners decided after more than 40 hours of careful deliberation by our expert judging panel.

You can find out all the winners on our dedicated Mobile Industry Awards 2020 hub.

Along with our line-up of awards, we also counted down the Power 50, which recognises leaders and influencers in the industry, and crowned our 16th Shop Idol winner in association with Samsung.

We would like to thank our 2020 sponsors and partners Sky Zero, Samsung and Mind, as well as our 2020 Media Partners - TechRadar Pro, 5GRadar, T3, ITProPortal and Android Central.
