This year Glasgow based Equator took home the consumer engagement prize for its website and social media work for whisky brand The Macallan on its Masters of Photography marketing campaign.

Equator was also later named best digital agency in the country after impressing judges with its international growth, impressive client list and the way it executed its work.

The event, attended by over 200 people at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow, was organised by The Herald and supported by Eureka Solutions, Enigma People Solutions and the Scottish Institute for Enterprise.

The judges said there had been a record number of entries and praised the impact Scottish businesses were making in international markets.

David Mains, director at Enigma People Solutions, said: ‘The Herald Scottish Digital Business awards get bigger and better every year and this year was no exception.

“The night always acts as a reminder as to why we love being a part of this innovative, and dynamic industry. Competition was tough, with such a high calibre of talent filling the Grand Ballroom, it was hard to determine who would walk away with the awards this year.”

Other winners included ResDiary, Line Digital, Culture Republic, Spider Online, Storm ID and Free Agent.

David Lindores, product development manager at Eureka Solutions, was highly impressed by the skill and dedication of the nominees.

He said: “The event provides a showcase of the outstanding talent Scotland has to offer to the digital community, with opportune moments to network with innovative and technically astute companies like ourselves.

“We were proud to sponsor and play a part in such an important event for Scottish digital technology companies.”

The awards also recognised the next generation of talent coming through with the student award going to City of Glasgow College’s Jennifer McGregor.

She won for her work on the CronhnieClothing website which offers fashion advice to people living with colostomy bags, burns and scars.

Fiona Godsman, chief executive of Scottish Institute for Enterprise, said: “We support students in Scotland’s universities and colleges and encourage them to consider starting new innovative businesses, or increasing their prospects on graduation by developing enterprise skills.

“Scotland’s digital industries continue to lead the way in terms of opportunities for young entrepreneurs and we’ve seen some very impressive success stories. The standard of entry for the competition was very high, and we’d like to congratulate the winners on their achievement.”

A huge congratulations to all our winners and finalists.
