Simon Denegri, NIHR National Director for Patients and the Public said:

“Congratulations to all the winners - the calibre of competition entries was extremely high so it wasn’t an easy judging process.

“It’s been great to see such a diverse range of entries to the competition and we hope to see this continue next year. It’s also been a pleasure to see so many people engaging with the entries through the public voting process, and we hope this encourages researchers to continue ‘getting digital’ with their research.

“It is this vitality and creativity across our community that will be so important to the NIHR delivering on its digital strategy in the coming months and years.”

The competition, which was brand new for this year, aimed to promote and recognise the ways people who are funded and supported by the NIHR can ‘get digital’ with their research, whilst raising awareness of research at the same time.

The 165 entries to the competition, and 2,251 public votes demonstrates the value of digital when it comes to engaging with research.

You can still get involved in the campaign by promoting the winning entries as excellent  examples of making research accessible in innovative, digital formats. All the shortlisted and winning entries can be found here.
