The awards were launched last year to bring together the UK's longest established awards, the BCS IT Awards and the BCS Management Awards, and introduce awards for individual specialists.
They fall into three groups: business, technology, and individual achievement. Each group has several categories, covering, for example, applications, services, commerce and the public sector. The individual category covers roles including IT director, developer, quality manager, consultant and trainer.
The awards will be presented at at the Hilton Park Lane Hotel, London, on 19 October.
