Welcome to the home page for iNetwork’s Seventh Annual Innovation Awards. The 2020 iNetwork Awards are a fantastic opportunity to celebrate, learn, and share innovation across the local public sector, and its partner organisations. This year we are excited to announce a new category the COVID-19 Response Recognition Award. This award recognises the response and recovery to the unprecedented challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since 2014, the iNetwork Awards have successfully cast a light on projects and teams that have delivered transformation and excellence in public service delivery. By highlighting outstanding projects across the sector, the Innovation Awards represent the perfect opportunity to come together and celebrate the brilliance and dedication of public servants, and their partners, as they strive to deliver more effective, and better value services for their communities.
The Innovation Awards nominations will open on Monday 07th September at 9:00 and close Wednesday 06th January at 11:59pm. All nominations will be entered into the public vote from Monday 11th January until Sunday 24th January 2021. After the judging process all shortlisted finalists will be invited to the Awards Ceremony on Thursday 11th March 2021.
If you have worked on, or know of, any project, service or initiative that promotes innovation in local public services, then have a read of the awards timeline process and categories and submit your nominations before the closing date.
