T3 Awards 2017 together with Three: all the shortlists for each of this year's awards

The cream of the year's tech crop, arranged into a series of easy-to-digest lists

The T3 Awards – the Oscars of Tech, as many call them – are now in their 11th year, and bigger than ever. Literally, in fact, as we have added a number of new categories this year to reflect the changing face of tech. 

We're thrilled that Three is sponsoring the T3 Awards this year. Here are the runners and riders in what people are calling the Grand National of Tech, the Rugby World Cup of Tech and the Premier League of Tech.

Duncan Bell
Duncan Bell

Duncan has been writing about tech for almost 15 years and fitness ever since he became middle aged and realised he could no longer rely solely on his boyish good looks. He used to be on telly loads, but an unfortunate incident put a stop to that, so he now largely contents himself with telling people, "I used to be on the TV, you know."
Pre-lockdown Duncan was widely regarded as the best-dressed man ever to work for T3 – admittedly not saying much. Post-lockdown he is looking forward to wearing clothes other than shorts and hoodies again very soon, assuming he can still fit into them. He currently writes about cycling, fitness tech that isn’t too heavy, and all things kitchen and home related.
