The Email a Prisoner app from Prison Technology Services was named overall winner of the 2015 Digital Leaders 100 Awards, at a glittering ceremony at the Hilton Hotel on Park Lane on Thursday evening.

The event, attended by 400 digital pioneers from the public, private and non-profit sectors, also saw the announcement of the ten category winners (listed below,) and the DL100 Editor’s Award, which went to Lloyds Banking Group.
