Vote for your favourite .london! - Heart Internet Blog - Focusing on all aspects of the web

Heart Internet is proud to sponsor the first ever Dot London Small Business Awards.

Celebrating the wide range of small businesses that make London great, the Dot London Small Business Awards are for businesses, organisations, or individuals that have a registered address in one of London’s 32 boroughs and have an online presence.

With categories including Best Place to Eat, New Business of the Year, and Independent Cultural Venue of the Year, the Dot London Small Business Awards are voted on by you, the public, and each winner will win a £1,000 cash prize, one-to-one mentorship on how to improve their online presence, and the opportunity to have a free .london domain name.
Heart Internet is sponsoring two categories: Creative Agency of the Year and Social Enterprise of the Year.
