Earlier this year I entered the Sussex Digital Awards in three categories. I entered my own website in the Creative category and also thecookshelf.co.uk in the Online Retailer and Lifestyle and Culture categories.

I was thrilled to receive an email from the Sussex Digital Awards team notifying me that I had been made finalists in all of the three categories and that we’d been invited to attend the awards ceremony earlier this month.

Kate from The Cookshelf and myself travelled to Pelham House in Lewes, East Sussex to enjoy an evening of networking and the awards ceremony itself.

We won the Gold Award!

The Cookshelf website won the Gold award for the Lifestyle and Culture category. We couldn’t believe it. Kate from The Cookshelf and I accepted the award. We were then interviewed in front of all the other finalists and local VIPs.

It was a great evening. To get the recognition for the work I did on the website was fantastic and I look forward to telling every one I am an Award Winning Web Designer!
