The European Software Testing Awards return for 2017!

Now in its fifth year, The European Software Testing Awards celebrate companies and individuals who have accomplished significant achievements in the software testing and quality assurance market.

31 Media, publishers of TEST Magazine and organisers of The National Software Testing Conference, are proud to announce The European Software Testing Awards’ return for 2017.

The European Software Testing Awards marks an opportunity for the software testing and QA industry as a whole to be acknowledged, praised and celebrated.

16 Awards categories to enter

The industry is invited to enter a diverse selection of categories, reflecting individual achievements such as Testing Manager of the Year and Graduate Tester of the Year; through to Best Agile Project and sector specific awards including Best Overall Testing Project – Gaming and Best Overall Testing Project – Finance.

There is also an opportunity to nominate the Testing Team of the Year and the Testing Management Team of the Year.

Additionally, feedback from previous years is available, in order to give entrants the best possible chance to impress the judges.

“Last year we saw a 20% increase in entries from the previous year, and we’re expecting a similar growth in this popular programme. The entries open on the 20th of March, and I urge everyone to examine past projects and consider nominating team members and departments, as it’s a great opportunity to boost team morale and recognition,” said Cecilia Rehn, Editor of TEST Magazine and Chair of the Awards judging panel.

Interested parties will be able to register online from the 20th of March 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.
