The Hong Kong ICT Awards aims at recognising and promoting outstanding information and communications technology (ICT) inventions and applications, thereby encouraging innovation and excellence among Hong Kong’s ICT talent and enterprises in their constant pursuit of creative and better solutions to meet business and social needs.
The Hong Kong ICT Awards was established in 2006 with the collaborative efforts of the industry, academia and the Government. Steered by the Office of the Government Chief Information Officer, and organised by Hong Kong ICT industry associations and professional bodies, the Awards aims at building a locally espoused and internationally acclaimed brand of ICT awards.
There are eight categories under the Hong Kong ICT Awards 2023. There will be one Grand Award in each category, and an “Award of the Year” will be selected from the eight Grand Awards by the Grand Judging Panel.
In encouraging the development of FinTech innovation and solutions (such as payment solutions, clearing and settlement systems, etc.) for enhancing operations and fostering new modes of business for the financial sector, the FinTech Award aims to develop HK into a financial technology hub.
The financial sector includes banking, insurance, securities trading, as well as fund and asset management. This FinTech Award would synergise, promote and recognise our FinTech community as a major player and force in the strategic development of Hong Kong as an innovative financial hub.The FinTech Award is composed of three streams:
*Includes FinTech Security
To ensure that the Awards principally reflect the work and progress of the local fintech sector, only companies registered locally in Hong Kong should submit applications. A significant part of the planning and development effort must come from local resources. Development tools can harness local or overseas software, but more weight will be attached to entries that demonstrate the use of local products.
Please refer to the prospectus for details of entries.
