Information and Communications Technology (ICT) has fuelled the economy, business and individuals with unlimited potentials for growth and development. With the concerted effort of the ICT industry, academia, the Government, and our community at large, Hong Kong has always been able to reap the benefits of ICT.

Since 2006, the Hong Kong ICT Awards have been developed under such collaborative effort to become one of the most renowned events of the ICT industry. In its sixth consecutive year, the Awards continue to receive tremendous support and participation from different sectors, showcasing their sterling work.

Over the years, the Awards have grown in scale and established reputation. Riding on this platform, many of our past winners have moved beyond Hong Kong, gained further recognition overseas and expanded into the global markets including the Mainlandís.

I wish to express my gratitude to my fellow Steering Committee members, members of Grand Judging Panel, Standards Assurance Sub-committee and Promotion and Sponsorship Sub-committee, Organising Committee, the ten Leading Organisers, and all the judges for their vigorous support, effort and contribution. Last but not least, my warmest congratulations to all winners of the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2012 for your great achievements and heart-felt thanks to all others who participated in the competition. All are indeed winners for Hong Kong.

Message from Professor Tony F Chan, JP
The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

I am honored as President of the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology to say a few words in tribute to ICT professionals. At every level, and in every sphere of human activity, nothing equals ICT for its power of penetration. It is everywhere in our lives and everywhere in the world, enhancing human capability and transforming human communication, from broadcasting to personal messaging.

ICT professionals are technologically innovative people with a keen sense of social and environmental responsibility. They are the driving force of progress in the Information Age.

The different categories of award amply reflect ICT's multifaceted contributions to modern life and society. I wish to congratulate members of the Organizing Committee and the Steering Committee, as well as the panel of judges, for making this glittering event a success. And I further congratulate the awardees for their meritorious performance that demonstrates ICTís relevance and importance to our community. Together, we will take Hong Kong to its next stage of development as a knowledge-based economy.

Developing by leaps and bounds, ICT has not only improved the quality of our life, but also brought new concepts to the society. All this has been made possible by ICT professionals who work diligently, by all means to create a better living for us.

Since its establishment, the Awards have been widely acknowledged by the industry. With such encouraging number of applications, it has reflected the rich devotion of local ICT professionals, who have been developing new technologies and applications and have successfully led the Hong Kong ICT industry into international markets.

I here would like to give my sincere thanks to all the members of Steering Committee, the 10 Leading Organisers, Judging Panels and my fellow members of the Organising Committee for their enthusiasm and full involvement in the Awards. Last but not least, thank you all the contestants, who have contributed to the development of the industry with their participation.
