Members of the public were invited via social media to watch a series of eight shortlisted videos from a total of 42 entries and then tweet their favourite to receive the People’s Choice award. They were told that judges were looking for innovations that address today’s social challenges, helping to build a better connected society.

The People’s Choice award went to Euan’s Guide, a website and app which acts as a community hub for people with disabilities.
