Best Software Release/Solution/Update

The Smart Building Awards 2023 are trade-only awards, meaning consumers are not permitted to enter any category. Each award will be judged fairly by an expert panel based on the criteria set out for each category. The judges will individually score each entry,

There is a qualifying period which will define which entries will be valid. This period will be between January 2022 and June 2023. That means any product launched, or project completed, before or after these dates will not be eligible to enter.

Each category will have a 500-word limit, while a further 250 words will be available to explain why you think you deserve to win the award. There will be different criteria for each award category, and while it’s not mandatory to meet every criteria point, there will be a certain number of boxes you will have to check before your entry is eligible.

The awards are completely FREE to enter and there is no limit on the number of categories or number of submissions you can tender.  Entries will close on 4 August 2023.
