Through co-operation among the ICT sector, academia and the Government, the Hong Kong ICT Awards has developed into a renowned event to recognise innovation and achievements in the local ICT industry. Over 1,000 locally developed ICT products and solutions have been recognised by the Hong Kong ICT Awards since its establishment in 2006.

* Best Business Solution Award
* Best Digital Entertainment Award     
* Best FinTech Award
* Best ICT Startup Award
* Best Lifestyle Award
* Best Mobile Apps Award
* Best Smart Hong Kong Award
* Best Student Invention Award
     Leading Organisers, which can be professional bodies, trade associations or other non-profit organisations, are responsible for recruiting and screening entries, promoting the Hong Kong ICT Awards through their networks and managing the adjudication process. They are selected through an open and competitive process based on an established assessment mechanism taking into account the quality of their proposals, capability and track record.
     Organisations that wish to become a Leading Organiser should obtain a proposal form from the Secretariat Office of the Hong Kong ICT Awards (email: info@hkictawards.hk). The deadline for submission is September 22, 2016.
