All TechAward Nominations must be made through the TechAwards website www.techawards.bm. The TechAwards Committee does not accept entries received by mail or by other means. No member of the TechAwards Committee, nor anyone associated with the committee, or contracted by the committee, may be held responsible for incomplete entries, technical difficulties, or entries that are not received by the deadline posted on the TechAwards Website.
All entries are screened by the TechAwards Committee to assure they meet all qualifications of the criteria. Once approved they are passed on to the Judge's Panel.
The judges will be looking for four factors:
is it a new concept in the marketplace,
does it have an innovative design or innovative use of technology,
what is the level of sophistication, does it have the "wow factor", and finally,
does it have a significant Bermuda factor?
