2013 ARN ICT Industry Awards celebrate community charisma and philanthropy

Trio of awards to recognise outstanding community efforts

ARN recognises the importance of community and is calling on the ICT industry to put in nominations in a trio of awards under the Community category including: sustainability, corporate citizenship and channel champion

There are a growing number of companies and individuals going above and beyond the call of duty to undertake socially responsible and philanthropic pursuits – and they need to be applauded and recognised.

So make your nominations in the following awards:

The Sustainability award is aimed at recognising a vendor, distributor or reseller for their efforts in delivering sustainable offerings to their customers over the past 12 months. We are looking for an organisation doing an outstanding job of promoting environmental efficiencies and sustainability practices across both its product base as well as through its channel.

The Corporate Citizenship award goes to a company (vendor, distributor or reseller) who is actively working with charities and non-profits, undertaking philanthropic initiatives and using its resources and capabilities in socially responsible ways.

The Channel Champion award goes to an individual working in a channel (vendor, distributor or reseller) organisation who has, outside of their daily working life, been heavily involved in working with charities, NFPS or in personal philanthropy.

For full details on how to nominate, visit the ARN Awards Nominations page. Nominations close Friday, July 12; so the earlier you nominate, the better. The ARN ICT Awards recognise and celebrate channel excellence over the past year. To be hosted at the black tie Celebration Dinner on Wednesday, September 18, at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney, the 2013 awards theme is A night of stars - celebrating a year of stars, aptly named for the myriad of channel champions, talented professionals and high-achieving technology companies making a difference in the ICT industry.

Like previous years, we are expecting a record number of entries this year across the 29 awards.

New this year is the Collaboration vendor award, which is this year’s designated focus as part of the Best Emerging Technology Initiative.The award focuses on collaboration technologies and how they are enabling better business communications and expanding the reach of enterprises. Technologies include video (videoconferencing and telepresence), Cloud-based collaboration, as well as BYOD and mobility.

ARN is also pleased to announce the launch of a new category for the 2013 ARN ICT Industry Awards. The Homegrown Innovators Awards (Service Provider of the Year and Software Developer of the Year) recognise the new breed of Australian companies – innovators finding success in bringing ICT products and solutions to new and established markets. ARN is enthusiastic about recognise companies which have established their businesses in Australia as start-ups (rather than being a multi-national subsidiary) to provide to domestic and/or global markets.

So get cracking and throw your hat into the ring.
