The closing date is fast approaching for entries to the 2018 Drapers Digital Awards, which will recognise and celebrate the best in the fashion ecommerce industry at a ceremony in London on 26 April next year.
The awards will once again form part of the wider Drapers Digital Festival, which brings together more than 700 professionals to explore the challenges and opportunities facing the fashion ecommerce industry.
The festival combines talks, debates, live judging sessions, exhibition and exclusive fringe events, including tours, workshops and roundtable discussions. It will be held at The Brewery on 52 Chiswell Street, in London, and the theme for 2018 is “A perfect fashion match: how to successfully engage your customers”.
The awards gala dinner will take place on the evening of the festival, in the same venue. There are 16 categories this year, including Best Multichannel Retailer, Best Pureplay Etailer, Best In-Store Digital Innovation and Best Digital Leader.
Our panel of judges for 2018 includes Gareth Jones, newly appointed chief executive of online at Missguided; Kate Holt, omnichannel director at Jigsaw; and Gareth Rees-John, incoming multichannel director at Miss Selfridge.
Three categories will be live-judged on stage during the festival: Best Digital Marketing Campaign, Best App and Best Use of Innovation.
The deadline for entries is this Friday, 15 December 2017. To find out more about the festival and enter the awards, head to:
