The GovInsider Innovation Awards were created to celebrate innovation in the public sector. Last year, government agencies in Singapore, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea, and the United Nations Development Programme were recognised for how they improved public services and enhanced citizens’ lives. Read about the winning projects from 2016.

Nominations will close on 30 June. Multiple nominations from the same agency are allowed. Find out more about the nomination categories and download the nomination forms here.

The awards will be judged by an international panel: Siim Sikkut, Government Chief Information Officer, Estonian Prime Minister’s Office; Karen Delafield, CIO, HM Treasury and Cabinet Office, United Kingdom; Tuty Kusumawati, Head of Jakarta Regional Development Planning Board, Indonesia; Stuart Smith, Chief of Service Innovation and Design, National University of Singapore, Institute of Systems Science; and Joshua Chambers, Editor, GovInsider.

Winners will be announced at Innovation Labs World, taking place on 26 September 2017 in Singapore. The event will gather thought leaders in the public sector and innovative government units to discuss the future of public service, and how to use creative solutions to improve public services.
