Technology innovators who helped the public adjust to the Covid-19 pandemic have been asked to enter a Government awards scheme.

The Economic Development Department has opened its nomination period for this year’s Tech Awards.

Raymond Jones, the director of the EDD, said: “Since 2007, the TechAwards, also known as the Bermuda Technology Innovation Awards, have celebrated the best Bermuda-based talent.

“Now more than ever, as Bermuda looks beyond the pandemic, we want to recognise those in the community who have helped, with technology solutions, the country to continue moving forward.”

The TechAwards are split into international market innovation, local market innovation, most innovative youth project and most innovative mobile application categories.

The nomination period will close on October 22.

Those who best meet the awards’ criteria will be asked to present their ideas to a panel of judges, all trailblazers in the IT industry.

Mr Jones said: “The past year and a half has reminded us that studying, working, and playing remotely is more than just possible.

“Members of the public, both individuals and organisations, have proven that to be true.

“I look forward to getting to know this year’s innovators and to celebrating the positive impact of their work on our Island.”

Nominations can be made at www.techawards.bm
