The 2020 program has been no different and has highlighted some of the most impressive projects we’ve seen. They are all worthy winners.”

During the virtual event, finalists made presentations with the judges having whittled down a record number of entries to a shortlist for each category. The four most innovative projects were then chosen as the winners, showcasing huge levels of expertise demonstrated across the sector. In one category, the public vote was used as a tie breaker.

“When it came to the submissions, our priority for success was an obvious assessment of customer needs, as well as innovation demonstrated by the project,” said Robin Davis, chair of the judging panel. “Were there any unique project challenges? Was there anything that out as exceptional?

Next year’s ICCAs will be held at Critical Communications World, which take place 8-10 June in Madrid.
