Calling all Industry Innovators!

We are glad to announce the call for nominations for the 2019 Industry Innovators awards, where we recognize government contractors’ vital role in the public sector IT community.

Any company supporting the public sector is eligible for a 2019 Industry Innovator award and nominees will be judged based on their contributions and leadership in the government market.

Winners will be selected on three core criteria:

  • Tangible evidence of the efforts that are driving innovation in this space. This includes, but is not limited to, internal investments, acquisitions, partnerships or alliances, relevant patents and key contract wins.
  • The innovative solution itself -- both the technology involved and how the company is leveraging it.
  • The mission impact. What are the problems or challenges that government customers need to solve, and how is this innovative company helping to address those challenges?

In your nomination, please tell us how your company is driving innovation in the government market in 2019.

The form calls out several specific technology areas -- artificial intelligence, analytics and automation, cybersecurity, cloud and infrastructure, digital transformation, Internet of Things and smart cities, and unmanned systems. But your companies work can be in any corner of government IT.

Nominations are due July 17.

This awards program is part of broader effort by Washington Technology and our sibling publications FCW, GCN and Defense Systems to recognize and celebrate the innovations that are occurring across the government market.

The winners will be recognized at an award gala on Nov. 7. Save that date.
