This award recognizes local governments who have already adopted cloud technology. Three (3) awards of US$50,000 in promotional credit from AWS for Paid Services (as defined in the Official Rules) will be awarded to existing AWS local government customers in eligible countries around the world--one for a local government serving up to 50,000 people, one for a mid-sized local government serving between 50,001 and 250,000 people and one for a large local government serving over 250,000 people.  The judging criteria for the award includes: uniqueness of the approach to the problem being solved; measurable impact of that approach for citizens; and potential to help other local or regional governments solve a similar problem.

This award recognizes application developers (individuals or companies) engaged in creating applications that solve local government challenges. Four (4) awards of US$25,000 in promotional credit from AWS for Paid Services (as defined in the Official Rules) each will be awarded to application developers who can demonstrate that their application solves a particular challenge faced by local government entities. The application must be running on AWS and available for local governments to deploy on AWS. The judging criteria for the award includes: usefulness of the application; how innovative the approach is to the problem being solved; and ease of deployment/implementation of the application.

AWS simplifies IT workloads that governments struggle with every day, making it easier to deploy and manage the technology our customers depend on, such as Geographical Information Systems (GIS), Content Management Systems (CMS), Open Data portals, and more. All of these applications run on AWS and make it easier for governments to deliver their services.

Register for the demo and spend 24 hours seeing how applications created by companies like ESRI, Microsoft and DKAN perform on the AWS cloud.
