Category Listing - Innovation

Digital - IoT

The Internet of Things has the power to reshape our world, as there is endless opportunity as we start to connect people to things, things to things and people to people. What will stand out in IoT are those that create a seamless experience and make the ordinary extraordinary.  

 

Digital - Expanded Service or Application

Open to apps in all categories with updates and developments that truly enhance the user experience and take your app or service to another level.  

 

Digital - New Service or Application

This can be any new service or application from a start-up to an industry leader. It’s not just bells and whistles we're after but true innovation, exceeding expectations and filling a void that had previously been open.  

 

Digital - Dev Platform/Dev tools/framework

The current pick of the crop apps have moved from roll your own to accelerating by using platforms, platforms like yours. The winner of this category will be a platform or service that makes the life cycle go easier than other alternatives, it will power features that would have taken years to bring to market and allow digital designers to run and jump where if they had to do it themselves they would just be imagining their solution
