Giving visibility to interesting or leading edge applications of digital government is the objective of the Digital Government Excellence Awards Competition. This is achieved through the publication of winning case histories submitted by contestants. The case histories are published in a book and they are also proposed to academic journals for further development and publishing.

The emphasis of the case histories needs to be on innovative, creative and effective Digital Government applications. We are keen to see how academe and Government Departments have worked together to identify, develop and implement innovative Digital Government applications and to this end we are encouraging joint submissions with both academic and practitioner contributors. The final round of the competition will be run alongside the 18th European Conference on Digital Government 

To enter the competition we are asking, in the first instance, for a 300 word abstract describing the initiative. If your proposal is suitable you will be invited to submit a full case history of no more than 3000 words, which will be considered as an entry to the competition. A panel of international adjudicators will evaluate the case histories.

When preparing your abstract, keep in mind that full case histories will be structured around the following headings:

  1. Introduction to the nature of the Digital Government initiative and its specific objectives
  2. The infrastructure i.e. people, systems, hardware, software etc. required to launch the initiative
  3. The challenges that were encountered, how they developed and how they were overcome
  4. How the initiative was received by the users or participants
  5. The learning outcomes that were achieved and how they were measured and evaluated
  6. Plans to further develop the initiative.

Authors of the top rated initiatives will be invited to register and attend the 18th European Conference on Digital Government to present their case histories to the judges and conference participants. Finalists will also have their case histories published in a book and a prize will be awarded to the initiative judged to show the most creative thinking.
