The European Software Testing Awards 2016 deadline approaches!

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

The whole industry has been invited to enter 16 categories including the Best Agile Project; Best Use of Technology; Graduate Tester of the Year; and Best User Experience (UX) Testing in a Project.

The final entries will be judged anonymously by the 2016 judging panel, which is comprised of senior heads of testing and QA, who have all been appointed based on their extensive experience in the software testing and QA field.

Comment from the judging panel

Commenting on her expectations from entrants, Awards judge Delia Brown, Head of Test at Home Office Technology, Test Design and Consultancy Services (TDCS) said: “It obviously depends on the category, but one of the important things for me, hopefully we’re doing it better these days, is putting forward something that is actually supporting business goals.

“Enabling the delivery of business goals, and bringing something above and beyond what you would expect, so whether that’s technical innovation or something surrounding people and approach. A project above and beyond the norm.”

For those wishing to enter the Awards, the booking deadline is 5 August, with final entries due by 12 August.

All finalists will be announced on 22 September. The winners will be announced at the glittering Gala Dinner at Old Billingsgate, London on 16 November.
