About this event

		Dynamites Awards 2021 image

Now in its EIGHTH year, the Dynamites in association with Invest Newcastle, North of Tyne Combined Authority and NTCA Good Work Pledge, are the North East’s most highly anticipated IT and Tech awards. The awards allow us to showcase the region’s hotbed of talent and shine a spotlight on North East organisations.

We are delighted to confirm that this year's ceremony will take place as a face to face event. We are looking forward to welcoming you all back in one room to celebrate our region's tech stars.

Join us for:

  • Drinks reception – a chance to socialise and network around the bar
  • Dinner – a three course meal
  • Award presentations – what you’ve all been waiting for!
  • Chance for companies to build profile and national status and join Dynamo's growing network
  • An evening of celebration and reflection of the region's tech sector


The Dynamites are a fantastic way to recognise hard work. They allow us all the opportunity to celebrate successes and share this with the tech community in the region as well as wider networks. Our 2021 categories are:

“We as the judging panel are looking forward to receiving a bumper crop of entries. They’re the perfect opportunity to celebrate and amplify the excellent work being done at so many tech companies in the north east.

“Last year’s virtual version of Dynamites was great fun given the constraints, but it will be brilliant to have everyone in the same room again.” Cate Kalson, chair of the judging panel
