ISPA believes that it is important to recognise companies as well as persons who have contributed in some small or significant way to the growth and development of the ICT industry. We are therefore pleased to announce the introduction of the “ISPA awards”. Three (3) categories have been determined and are briefly defined below.
We are calling on members to submit nominations. The form is available at: ispa.org.za/ispa-awards-nomination-form
Support this initiative by submitting your nominations now. To assist our judges in their selections, please ensure that you complete all fields requested on the nomination form. Winners will be announced at the iWeek gala dinner to be held on Thursday, 2015-09-10 at the Spier Hotel and Wine Farm, Stellenbosch, Cape Town. If the nominated candidates are not able to attend the event, they can elect someone else to be present on their behalf.
This recognises an ISPA member demonstrating innovation in providing Internet access. The measure of innovation for 2015 will be the member providing the most remote Internet access in South Africa but different measures of innovation will be used for future year’s Innovation Award.
This recognises the ISPA member whose project or projects have had the most meaningful impact on the community. This award acknowledges that different sized companies have different resources for community projects, and depending on the number of nominees, awards may be given for different sizes of ISPA member for this category.
This recognises an individual who is going above and beyond his or her job to promote Internet development in South Africa.
