Last year the Awards Categories included achievements in Open Data, Digital Skills and Innovative Enterprise. This year we may also expect to see progress in Smart City developments, Broadband Quality and Network Management, major steps in eHealth, examples of Municipal Enterprise and the role of cultural activities in the growth of local/regional economies.

The Awards Categories will, however, be determined by the Nominations. The Open Call is an appeal to anyone to put forward any project or team deserving wider recognition for their achievements. We need only contact details and a brief descriptive line. We will research the Nominations ahead of the assessment for Short-Listed Finalists in July.

The Finalists will be invited to prepare an expanded submission to a prestigious independent judging panel and the winning entries will be celebrated at an Awards Dinner in November. Submission guidance will be given and entry is free of charge.
