Each of the three categories of this Award comprises Gold, Silver and Bronze awards as well as Certificates of Merit. A special award – the “Outstanding SME Award” – will also be selected from the winners in each category in the awards programme, in order to give more recognition to the most innovative products, applications and services deployed by local SMEs.
