The Hong Kong ICT Awards were established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. The aim is to build a locally recognised and internationally acclaimed brand of ICT awards in Hong Kong. Over the years, the Awards have effectively served as a springboard for local ICT innovations to make inroads into the international arena.
This year's Hong Kong ICT Awards created a new award category, Best Smart Hong Kong Award, to encourage the development of "smart" applications and solutions for "Smarter Hong Kong, Smarter Living" in line with the vision set out in the new Digital 21 Strategy.
Detailed information about the winners and the 10 award categories are available on the website of the Hong Kong ICT Awards (www.hkictawards.hk).
