T3 Awards 2016: everything you need to know!

Celbrating a decade of the world's finest tech awards

It's the T3 Awards 2016 powered by EE this week!

The ceremony takes place this Wednesday September 28, at London's prestigious Royal Horticultural Hall. Naturally, you'll be able to follow the action right here as well as on Twitter @T3dotcom and #T3Awards.

Celebrating its tenth anniversary this year, the T3 Awards is known as “the Oscars of Tech,” and not only by us. Indeed, a T3 Award has become one of the most prestigious prizes in the industry, given only to the greatest gadgets, the best brands and the most innovative, er, innovators.

Not surprisingly, Virtual Reality has a big impact on this year’s nominations. The HTC Vive receives three for Gadget, Gaming Product and Innovation of the Year. The Oculus Rift has two (Gadget and Gaming Product of the Year), with the Samsung Gear 360 nominated for Innovation of the Year.

Samsung is this year’s most nominated company with an incredible 11 nods. Apple and Sony/Sony PlayStation pick up six each, and go mano-a-mano-a-mano with Samsung for Phone and Brand of the Year.

Other notable nominees include HTC, who receive five, and Microsoft and LG, who both have four.

The winners are decided by your votes and those of a panel of expert judges from the tech biz, and the results will be announced this Wednesday.
