Nominate an IT leader at the top of their game for the 2023 CIO Awards


Do you know an IT leader at the forefront of their profession? For the first time in South Africa, the country’s top IT minds will be recognised for excellence in their field during a gala dinner at the 2023 CIO Awards.

The year 2023 marks two significant milestones for the CIO South Africa community: the first anniversary of the CIO South Africa Community since its official launch, and the introduction of the 2023 CIO Awards – dubbed the Oscars of IT – which recognise outstanding IT leaders, their accomplishments, and some of the exceptional ways they have led their teams to success.

Nominations for the most prestigious awards in the field of information technology are now open. This is an opportunity for companies to recognise their chief information officers (CIOs) and their contributions to their organisations’ success.

The CIO Awards celebrate the outstanding achievements of CIOs, CTOs, CDOs and IT executives who have demonstrated excellence in leadership, innovation, and technology management. These awards recognise IT leaders who have made significant contributions to their organisations by leveraging technology to drive business growth, enhance customer experience, and improve operational efficiency.

To nominate a CIO or an IT leader, simply visit the CIO Awards website and fill out the nomination form. Nominations can be made by anyone, including colleagues, employees, partners, and customers. The nomination process is easy, and it only takes a few minutes to complete.

Nominees will go through an intensive interview and judging process before the winners are announced at a glamorous gala dinner on 15 November 2023 at the Polo Room, Inanda Club.

The 2023 CIO Awards categories are:

  • CIO of the Year
  • Public Sector CIO of the Year
  • Young CIO of the Year
  • Strategy & Leadership Award
  • Digital Innovation Award
  • Smart Data Award
  • IT Project of the Year
  • Cybersecurity Award

Being nominated for a CIO Award is a significant achievement for any CIO or IT leader. It is a recognition of their hard work, dedication, and leadership skills. It is also an opportunity for organisations to showcase their technology prowess and their commitment to excellence.

The CIO Awards are organised by a group of leading industry experts and professionals who understand the importance of technology in today's business landscape, and supported by leading technology companies, including EOH, Makwa IT, and Workday.
