The Hong Kong ICT Awards were established in 2006 under a collaborative effort amongst the industry, the academia and the Government. The Awards aim at building a large scale and internationally recognised branding of ICT awards of Hong Kong.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards recognise, promote and commend the excellent achievements to which Hong Kong ICT professionals and organisations contribute. The Awards also encourage local practitioners to develop innovative and creative ICT solutions, which will uplift the image of Hong Kong ICT sectors, both locally and internationally.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards Steering Committee, chaired by the Government Chief Information Officer, provides overall policy steer to the Awards Scheme. The Hong Kong ICT Awards 2013 comprise ten categories, including Best Business Award, Best Collaboration Award, Best Digital Entertainment Award, Best Digital Inclusion Award, Best Green ICT Award, Best Innovation & Research Award, Best Lifestyle Award, Best Mobile Apps Award, Best Public Service Application Award, and Best SME ICT Award. Each award category is organised by an industry-related organisation. There will be one Grand Award in each category and an “Award of the Year” will be selected from the ten Grand Awards by the Grand Judging Panel.
