The MCA eBiz Awards 2014
The Malta Communications Authority announced that the applications for nominations for the fourth edition of the MCA eBusiness Awards are now open.
The MCA eBiz awards are singled out as a unique annual event of its kind in Malta because it is the only award that acknowledges the use of technology in the entrepreneurial efforts of individuals and organizations.

• Best eGov initiative
• Best eCommerce site (B2C)
• Best B2B application
• Best App
• Best use of Social Media
• Best use of the Cloud
• Best MBA thesis (in collaboration with University of Malta)
Interested parties are invited to submit their nomination by no later than 12.00hrs on Friday, 12th September 2014, after which an independent adjudication committee comprising experts from academia, the private industry and the Government will be appointed to jointly evaluate, short-list and select a winner for each category.
In a brief comment about this year’s awards MCA Chairman Dr Edward Woods said that ‘’MCA will continue to sustain initiatives that offer the local business community the opportunity and the right context to showcase its innovative solutions and approaches to overcome the increasing challenges of a global competitive environment.’’ Dr Woods added that ‘Our aim is to encourage further innovation through ICT applications - an essential ingredient in today’s dynamic business setting’’.
