As well as Google who cover travel and prizes, we have the following prize sponsors over the last few years:

  • EMC sponsored the best final year prize, 2013-2016 and keep coming back for more. Indeed, they employed one of the prize winners in 2014, so we must be doing something right! They came back in 2017 as Dell-EMC.
