SiTF Awards 2010 Now Open For Nominations

Singapore infocomm industry association Singapore infocomm Technology Federation (SiTF), has just announced that its SiTF Awards 2010 is now open for nominations.

The yearly awards event is held to recognize and showcase “Made In Singapore” infocomm technology innovation by multinational companies, local enterprises, start-ups and students, with last year’s awards receiving over 100 nominations.

“For decades, the ICT industry has been a key pillar of Singapore’s economy but through these awards, SiTF wants to not only foster local innovation, but also to raise the profile of Singapore’s ICT capabilities and to promote Singapore as a hotbed for ICT innovation,” said Ms Ho Se Mun, Executive Director, SiTF.

This year sees the introduction of new categories, and is opening up nominations to primary-school students from ages seven years and upwards. “We’ve all read stories about children, as young as six years old, writing applications for mobile phones or creating new inventions out of pure ingenuity,” said Mr Eddie Chau, the 2nd vice-chairman of SiTF and organizing chairman of this year’s awards. Chau is also the founder and CEO of online monitoring company Brandtology. You can find the full list of categories here.
