Blacknight Announce Sponsorship of 2014 Web Awards in Two Categories

Categories include Best Website of a Startup and Best Online Publication

Ireland’s leading domain registrar and hosting company proudly announce their sponsorship of the 2014 Web Awards.

The Web Awards will celebrate website owners and developers who create a compelling web presence and demonstrate excellence in both usability and visitor experience. This year’s awards will be held October 22, 2014 at the Ballsbridge hotel in Dublin.

Long time Web Awards sponsors Blacknight are pleased to announce their sponsorship of multiple categories for 2014. The leading Irish technology company will sponsor the awards for both Best Website of a Startup and Best Online Publication.

“The Web Awards are one of our favourite yearly events to sponsor as Blacknight began as a startup many years ago,” explains Blacknight CEO Michele Neylon. “We chose to sponsor the categories of Best Website of a Startup and Best Online Publication because they are both categories that reflect our pet interests.

Almost nothing excites the Blacknight team like a well executed website and we are very pleased to reward the best Online Publication. We know first hand how difficult it is create a great website and to publish compelling content so we couldn’t choose just a single category.”

The Web Awards are unique as anyone can be nominated and win regardless of size or financial capacity. The awards honour the best work produced by the Irish Internet community, ask no entry fee for nominees and promise one of the most irreverent, fun filled nights for the tech industry. The nominees are chosen by committee and the ceremony itself is a fun, informal celebration of everything that makes the Irish Internet great.

Web Awards founder and MC Damien Mulley states: “We're delighted to have Blacknight support our event again this year as they do with so many other tech and business events in Ireland. Michele and team are the sugar daddies of the Irish biztech scene but with less elaborate clothing, though I suspect Michele does have a hat with a feather in it. Blacknight is so good to us.”
