Special award categories

The Awards will also feature two special awards, handed out at the end of the evening.

The European Software Testing Award

This main and overall award of the evening will be awarded to the tester, manager, or team that judges felt has excelled in all areas and surpassed every other individual, project, or organisation within the industry.

Outstanding Achievement Award

Voted on by the judges, this award is to celebrate an outstanding achievement by a renowned and acknowledged veteran in the European testing field who has shown consistent commitment to the testing industry.

Interested parties can register online and download the entry forms. Completed entries are due back by the 11th of August 2017.

The European Software Testing Summit

Over the last five years, The European Software Testing Awards has grown to become the global recognition platform for the software testing and QA community. To further strengthen that position and to ensure valued and insightful learning is derived from the awards, The European Software Testing Summit was launched in 2016.

Last year, all entries into the Awards programme were analysed and information gleaned from thousands of entries was distilled into The European Summit Report, available to download for free.

The European Software Testing Summit will return to Central London in November.
