Members of the judging panel were once again effusive in their praise of the quality of the award entrants in this year’s program:
“I love seeing how, every year, the set of participants is different but the best entries always pivot around the same mantra: solving problems,” said Jaime Rodríguez-Guerra, Computer Hoy (Spain). “While I admit that my expectations, after having judged prior Best in Biz Awards, were already high, after a thorough revision of this year’s entries I remain in awe. There is still lot to offer, and the candidates in Best in Biz Awards show it year after year. I am already looking forward to the next edition!”
“More than twenty years after the internet became a must-have tool and medium for businesses, it’s fascinating to see how leading firms, as encapsulated by this strong crop of Best in Biz Awards contenders, demonstrate how far we’ve come,” said Mathew Schwartz, judging his fourth Best in Biz Awards competition. “I was especially struck by how strong the cloud computing segment continues to be — not just apps but also infrastructure — and how even with the best technology in the world, user interface design and the user experience remains so crucial.”
“It was very inspiring reading about the achievements of the various executives and selecting the best from such a high-achieving group was indeed a tall order,” said Manjula Ramakrishnan, having judged numerous Best in Biz Awards International programs in the past. “The diverse fields that they excelled in lent substance to the fact that opportunities lie in every sphere of life. Another fact that became amply evident from the entries was how use of contemporary technology to achieve excellence has become the norm. I wish all of them greater success and more avenues to chase their corporate dreams.”
Winners in the 5th annual program were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of judges hailing from a wide spectrum of top-tier publications and media outlets and from 15 countries and all continents. Best in Biz Awards’ uniqueness stems, in part, from the composition of its judging panels. Each year, only editors, writers and contributors to business, consumer, financial, trade and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms, are invited to serve as judges. Structured this way, Best in Biz Awards can best leverage the expertise, experience and objectivity of its influential judges to determine award winners.
This year’s judging panel included writers and contributors to such publications as ARD (Germany), Business Breakfast (United Arab Emirates), Computer Hoy (Spain), Data Breach Today (United Kingdom), HT Mobile (Israel), IAA Magazine (United Arab Emirates), InBusiness (Cyprus and Greece), Irish Independent (Ireland), Radio Ngati Porou (New Zealand), TechHim (India), TechnoFILE.com (Canada), Tune Media (Singapore), Ventures Africa (Nigeria), and Wirausaha & Keuangan (Indonesia).
Best in Biz Awards is now accepting entries in its 7th annual North American program, open to any company from any industry based in or operating in North America, in 65 company, department or team, executive, product, and PR and media categories. The next deadline is July 28 and the late entry deadline is September 29, 2017.
