Calling all nominations for ICT industry's top awards
The public has up until Sunday, 20 August to submit nominations for the IT Personality and Visionary CIO Awards.
The awards are presented by the Institute of IT Professionals SA (IITPSA), in association with ITWeb, the Gordon Institute of Business Science, Engineer IT and Gartner Africa.
Adapt IT's Sbu Shabalala was crowned last year's winner, joining a list of previous ICT heavyweights that includes Niel Schoeman, Mteto Nyati and Mark Shuttleworth.
The Visionary CIO award, now in its ninth year, recognises an individual who has shown exceptional leadership in using technology to support and grow business.
Peter Alkema, CIO of FNB Business Banking, won the 2016 Visionary CIO award. Alkema joined previous winners including Peter du Plooy, Tshifhiwa Ramuthaga and Rabelani Dagada.
A judging panel will shortlist 10 IT Personality and 10 Visionary CIO candidates from the nominations.
"There is public participation, where the public can indicate whom they believe to be most worthy of being awarded these prestigious awards. The judges use the nominations, their own research and in-depth interviews to determine the award winners," according to the IITPSA.
The winners will be announced at the IITPSA President's Awards event later this year.
