14th September 2018

Horisk are delighted to have been shortlisted for both the Courier Business Awards 2018 and The Herald Scottish Digital Business Awards 2018.

In the Courier Business Awards, Horisk have been shortlisted in the Digital Business of the Year category for the second year in a row, and also in the Small Business of the Year award for the first time.

Their submission highlighted

  • Horisk’s continued success in the public sector, including our work on high-profile projects this year for Scotland's Charity Regulator (OSCR) and Historic Environment Scotland.
  • Their ability to punch above our weight by competing with - and winning tenders against - global and large national firms on the Scottish Government Application Design & Development (ADDS) Framework.
  • A strong portfolio of long-term, blue-chip clients including The London School of Economics, Tradeprint and the Scottish SPCA.
  • Commitment to their staff
  • Involvement in the wider business community, including Fife Chamber of Commerce.

Horisk have also been nominated for The Herald Scottish Digital Business Awards 2018 for Scotland’s Rock Art Project which was developed for Historic Environment Scotland. This project aims to conduct detailed research on over 2,700 prehistoric rock carvings in Scotland, and to enhance local, national and international awareness of this unique aspect of our heritage.

The project involved

  • providing a database and tools which can support the project team and volunteers in organising the rock art survey and gathering and validating research grade data
  • exchanging data with Scotland’s national archive
  • providing an engaging website (www.rockart.scot) to educate and inform the public about this often overlooked part of our heritage.

Principal investigator Dr Tertia Barnett said "Horisk have created an invaluable new resource for community co-production of rock art data. The website and data input system are very user-friendly, despite their complexity, and will underpin research and understanding of Scotland’s rock art now and into the future.”

Managing Director, Brian Horisk said "We’re really pleased that our work is continuing to be recognised both locally and nationally. In both the awards, it’s an honour to be shortlisted along with some of the most innovative and successful companies in Scotland.
