PASHA-ICT-Awards-Winners

9th [email protected] Awards, the premier ICT event of the country to recognize the local talent in Information and Communication Technologies, held this week in Lahore.

The theme for this year’s Awards was “Innovation Beyond Limits” – certainly one befitting the ambitious brains behind our growth and progress in ICT.

[email protected], in a statement issued today, claimed for raising the quality bar every year and reward only the most deserving candidates out of a 100+ entries that flood the jury’s desk this year.

Speaking at the event, Jehan Ara, President – [email protected], said “The judges are becoming tougher and tougher each year and are awarding recognition to only the best in each category. If they think that entries in a particular category do not warrant giving out an Award they reduce the number of awards given. We are delighted with some of the entries received this year and are looking forward to taking the winners to Brunei to compete regionally against the best software applications in the Asia Pacific.”

[email protected]’s newly-elected Chairman, Naseer Akhter, said that there is a lot of potential in the Pakistan ICT sector. All that is needed is that they be nurtured and recognized for their achievements. [email protected]’s mandate is to ensure that the industry continues to grow in leaps and bounds. Toward that end [email protected] has been strengthening its resources to provide the support that the industry demands. This year we have very ambitious targets and we look forward to working with the ICT community to achieve them.
