Nominations are closing soon for the Innovation Awards 2022, with the deadline for submissions set to close on Friday 7 October following increased industry demand.

The industry-leading awards program will house a modernised category line-up, enhanced submission criteria and standout market awareness as Channel Asia raises the bar for industry excellence across ASEAN.

Set for Tuesday 6 December, the Innovation Awards 2022 will run as an in-person black tie event to bring the channel together under the Channel Asia roof at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

In a step away from predictable awards programs, entire local and regional ecosystem expertise will not only be acknowledged and celebrated, but transformative examples of partner best practice amplified further via Channel Asia -- the leading business technology publication in Southeast Asia.

Notable enhancements centre around the increased prioritisation of customer case studies to showcase the innovative capabilities of expert partners, a commitment to expand reach into all countries across the region and a heightened focus on both established and emerging providers.

Mirroring the market, Innovation Awards 2022 will recognise the standout work of managed service providers, system integrators and value-added resellers, complemented by bleeding edge start-ups, cloud specialists, independent software vendors, consultancy giants, boutique agencies and application developers -- all collaborating, all contributing.

Likewise, innovation at vendor and distributor levels will also be magnified, recognising leading champions of the channel, creative thinkers, consistent performers and market leaders.

To achieve this, Innovation Awards 2022 will honour the channel across eight categories, spanning Partner Innovation, Tech Innovation, ASEAN-wide Innovation, Start-up Innovation, Personal Innovation, Vendor Innovation, Distributor Innovation and Hall of Fame.

Nominations are free to enter and will run until Friday 7 October. Nominations can be submitted by an individual, an employee, employer or business partner with only ASEAN-based individuals and examples eligible.

Submissions are free to enter and will be accepted from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam, in addition to Hong Kong, Brunei, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos. All parties are welcome to submit either regional (ASEAN and Hong Kong) or country-specific nominations, or both.

Finalists and winners will be selected by an executive judging panel of business leaders from partner, vendor and distributor organisations.
