Therefore, we actively recommend members of the BDA to be innovative and explore avenues for quality improvement through the use of technology. This award is to acknowledge and celebrate successful digital innovations, and encourage sharing of best practice.
This award is open for applications. To apply for Digital Innovation of the Year Award:
