Categories


The European eCommerce Awards’ categories straddle multiple industry sectors as we understand that each has different requirements for success, guidelines and regulations and objectives and outcomes. The team awards will differentiate between small and large businesses and between in-house and agency.

We hope everyone will enter the Covid Response category, as we have witnessed outstanding adaptability across all business sectors, social media and remote working which should be rewarded, recognised and celebrated.

Please see the following descriptions for more information on each category:
