The first .GOV Awards Saudi Arabia will be presented at a gala awards dinner, to be held at the Al Faisaliah Hotel, Riyadh, on 14th September. Nominations for the awards are now open.

This new awards program is intended to honour the achievements of the government sector in the Kingdom in the ICT field.

The ITP Technology .Gov Awards have been established to highlight the world leading progress that governments across the region have made in the field of smart government and the use of information technology to drive progress and improve lives.

These awards, which are only open to government entities from Saudi Arabia, will recognise the outstanding work that has been conducted by the government sector in the Kingdom in the past 12 months, in emerging fields such as online services, smart government and smart cities.

Deadline for nominations is 18th August.

The awards build on the success of the first .Gov Awards for Abu Dhabi and Federal Government, and for Dubai and Northern Emirates, which were held earlier this year.

This new event is expected to attract more than 300 heads of government entities and technology professionals, providing an unrivalled networking and business development opportunity as well as a platform to honour the sector's top performers.

Awards will be presented in 15 categories which will recognise new online services, successful deployments carried out by government departments, new initiatives in government services and outstanding leaders and individuals.

The award categories are:
