CRN Channel Awards - The biggest awards in the channel are back for 2020!

⭐ Entries now open ⭐

Deadline to submit: Monday 10 August, 5pm

We are delighted to announce that entries are now open for the 2020 CRN Channel Awards! After months of uncertainty we are determined to give the channel the end of year celebration of success that it deserves.

It is more important than ever to celebrate and recognise success in the channel after an unprecedented year. We have created some extra categories for this year only that are dedicated to initiatives carried out during the Covid-19 lockdown, and also some personal awards for individual or team heroes who went above and beyond the call of duty during these difficult times. But we of course have all the normal categories across our category groups for resellers, distributors and resellers.

Whatever happens, the 2020 Channel Awards will be fully inclusive – whether entrants prefer a virtual or a physical approach to celebrating success – both will be catered for in these awards this year on Thursday 12 November. We will be keeping you updated regularly as things develop.

The channel is constantly innovating and adapting, more rapidly than ever this year, be proud of what you have achieved this year - this is your chance to be recognised at the most prestigious awards in the channel, and an opportunity to start looking to the future!


This event is working towards the International Standard ISO 20121 and follows guidance set out by the Sustainable Event Alliance (SEA)
