Everest Media has been shortlisted as Best Digital Media Company - and we're all delighted!
“Our team has everything crossed that we will be named as the Best Digital Media Company. But we know it will be tough! To be mentioned alongside the other contenders is already a proud achievement for us.

What are the EDGE Awards?
The Cornwall Live EDGE Awards was first launched in 2017, stylishly putting Kernow’s digital superstars into the spotlight.
Space is to be the theme for this year’s awards. Team Everest will be rubbing shoulders with some of the Duchy’s finest digital entrepreneurs, games designers and software developers. Teaching projects and businesspersons in the space and marine industries have also been named.
The final shortlist including Everest Media’s inclusion in the running for the award, sponsored by the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Skills Hub, was announced this week.
