2016 GCN dig IT Awards Call for Nominations Now Open

Revamped awards celebrate discovery and innovation in government IT

(VIENNA, VA., April 19, 2016)— GCN and 1105 Public Sector Media Group are pleased to announce that nominations for the 2016 GCN dig IT Awards are now being accepted.

For 28 years, the GCN Awards have showcased general excellence in government IT. This year, with the GCN dig IT Awards, we are sharpening the focus to showcase what matters most: transformative tech that is truly reinventing government.

"Most people know that the government invented the Internet and developed GPS," GCN Editor-in-Chief Troy K. Schneider said. 'But there are so many more examples, each and every year, where public sector is sparking important innovations that don't get nearly the attention they deserve. And governments at all levels are taking new technologies developed elsewhere and using them in remarkably creative ways. That's what led us to the dig IT acronym – this discovery and innovation in government IT should really be put in the spotlight."
