The second annual awards ceremony, hosted by price comparison site Pricecheck and sponsored by Criteo, was held at the The Westin in Cape Town on Thursday evening. The event aims to recognise and reward South African businesses and individuals making their mark in the e-commerce and technology industries.

A shortlist was whittled down from 44,500 public votes. The winners of each category – with the exception of the People's Choice – were then selected by this year’s panel of expert judges which included Michele Lozzo, Dan Guasco, Geoff Cohen, Mich Atagana, Matthew Buckland and Lynette Hundermark.
