The Egyptian leading entrepreneur Ali Shaaban who is considered one of the rare makers of the digital industry in Egypt and the Middle East launched recently NU Digital Awards that is the first-ever digital awards stemming from Egypt and the MENA region.
NU digital first edition will kick off in May 2020, the NU Digital Awards bring a much-needed (and much-anticipated) breath of fresh air to the digital ecosystem, by aiming to raise and inspire the bar of creative digital excellence through recognizing and celebrating the best creative, innovative and disruptive commercial digital applications from the real world and shedding light on them in the digital world.
Adhering to international standards and featuring a top-notch roster of leading digital professionals, NU Digital Awards’ mandate is to provide a platform for connecting all commercial entities involved in digital work – from startups to the region’s leading corporates and everything in between – and rewarding these brands & individuals with the acknowledgement and exposure that their work truly deserves.
Egypt’s first digital awards brand communicates passion, excellence and transparency. They seek to amplify the burning need to pursue something bigger and better, to strive for the highest levels of quality and innovation, and to be accountable and open in all business practices including the judging process which is defined by being transparent, unbiased and fair to all. They believe that persistence and determination needs more than commercial success; they need a symbolic perpetual reminder of their outstanding digital creative efforts, and what better way to establish that than with a uniquely distinctive trophy.
The trophies are classified into 3 categories: Gold, Silver and Bronze. Interested parties can submit their entries into one of five main categories, which are Digital Campaigns, Social Engagement, Digital Craft, Cross-Border and Special Awards. These five categories are further broken down into 59 subcategories that cover a wide spectrum of digital applications. It’s safe to say that whatever your product or service, there’s a subcategory for that.
The NU awards ceremony will be taking place on an annual basis, and the ceremony itself will be a luxurious celebration that will be held at a yet-undisclosed venue in Cairo, but we’re sure it will be glamourous and worthy of accommodating the best that the industry has to offer.
Brands or individuals interested in becoming sponsors and standing out from the crowd can apply on their official website. Check it out here www.nudigitalawards.com and get to know all about the NU Digital Awards.
