Trade Mark Direct, which provides high quality, low fee trade mark registration advice online from qualified attorneys, announced it has made the shortlist of entries for the prestigious Nominet Internet Awards 2013 in the Innovative Internet Business category.
The Nominet Internet Awards celebrate the achievements and innovation of UK internet initiatives. The awards aim to showcase projects from UK businesses, charities, individuals and public and private sector organisations which help to make the internet a more secure, open, accessible and diverse experience for all.
“We're chuffed to be shortlisted for the Nominet Internet Awards. The team work hard to give all our loyal clients excellent advice and support, and that so many rate our service highly and use us again and again has been key to our growth” said Mark Kingsley-Williams, director of Trade Mark Direct.
A panel of judges are due to select the winners, which will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 4 July at The British Library, hosted by technology journalist Kate Russell.
Lesley Cowley, CEO of Nominet, says: “Once again the Nominet Internet Awards nominees represent the diversity of online innovation found in the UK. From online safety and awareness through to innovative new public services, the last twelve months has seen a number of strides across a wide range of sectors focussed on making the internet an even greater source of economic and social good for all. In an environment where the internet doesn’t always get good press, the awards have uncovered some shining examples of the positive impact the internet is having around the UK.”
Support for Trade Mark Direct's entry in the awards can be shown via the NIA website or by tweeting variations on “Congratulations to @TradeMarkDirect for making the #nia2013 shortlist” ahead of 17 May 2013.
