Only one week remains for online nominations for the .GOV magazine Awards for government entities in Dubai & the Northern Emirates.

Nominations will close for the awards, which recognise IT achievements among government entities in the UAE, on Thursday 28th April 2016.

The ITP Technology .GOV Awards highlight the world leading progress that the UAE has made in the field of smart government and the use of information technology in government to drive progress and improve lives.

The awards are open to all Dubai, Sharjah, Ras al-Khaimah, Ajman, Fujairah and Umm al-Quwain government entities and partners. The awards recognise the outstanding work that has been conducted by the government sector in the Emirates in the past 12 months, in emerging fields such as online services, smart government and smart cities.

The awards build on the success of .GOV’s award program, launched last year, which includes awards for Abu Dhabi & Federal Government and Saudi Arabia Government.
