Commonwealth opens entries for ICT Awards 2018 in 11 categories

The Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation (CTO) has opened calls for 2018 entries into the biennial Commonwealth ICT Awards.

In a statement issued in London, the Organisation said the second biennial Commonwealth ICT Awards 2018 will take place in the evening of 18 June 2018 being the first day of the Commonwealth ICT Ministers Forum to take place on 18 – 20 June 2018 in London.

According to the CTO, the Commonwealth ICT Awards which are in 11 categories are intended to recognise major achievements in ICTs by member countries and organisations and to share knowledge amongst stakeholders in key areas.

CTO is therefore welcoming Country Awards entries in the following categories; Universal access initiatives, Broadband access initiatives, ICT policy and regulatory initiatives, Cybersecurity initiatives, and Spectrum management initiatives.

The last but not the least on Country Awards is Applications (e-health, e-education, e-agriculture and e-commerce)

Under Industry Awards, entries are welcomed for Universal access initiatives, Broadband access initiatives, Cybersecurity initiatives, Applications (e-health, e-education, e-agriculture and e-commerce), and Corporate social responsibility

CTO advised that submissions, which should be received no later than 1 June 2018 and requests for more information should be sent to awards@cto.int

Business Hilights recalls that CTO was established in 1901, and has since become the oldest and largest Commonwealth intergovernmental organisation in the field of information and communication technologies.

With a diverse membership spanning developed and developing countries, Small Island developing states, and more recently also non-Commonwealth countries, the private sector and civil society, the CTO aims to become a trusted partner for sustainable development for all, including beyond the Commonwealth, through ICTs.
