The Grand Prix returns as the highest accolade of the night.

To lobby for a Finalist slot, email Andrew.Wooden@intentmedia.co.uk, telling us briefly why. Deadline is Friday November 26th.

"Following ever increasing demand, we have decided to move the PCR Awards to the new location of the Lancaster London, a highly esteemed venue which will prove a great venue for us." said PCR publisher Stuart Dinsey. "All the elements that have made the night such as success for three previous years return, and we hope you can all be a part of it.

"One of the key drivers of its success is the transparent judging process, which the trade really appreciates. The fact the event covers all facets of the industry has also made the event tremendously popular, and we were delighted with the response we got from this year's awards. We look forward to seeing you all in March."

At this year's awards, over 300 member of the industry gathered to watch Microsoft take home the prestigious Grand Prix, following the strong execution of its latest operating system Windows 7.
