Awards Categories

With a number of new awards introduced to 2020, there is a category for every single player in the digital ecosystem.


1. Mobile Tech

Globally, there are more than 9 billion mobile connections (GSMA Intelligence, July 2019). Mobile technology now affects the everyday lives of over 5 billion people. Networks and technology are at the epicentre of mobile innovation, and this category recognises the companies that are revolutionising the capabilities and reach of mobile and digital technology.

2. Connected Consumer

The Consumer is King. As consumers migrate to the digital age, every business needs to evolve their relationship and product to match the, now, connected consumer. This category recognises the companies who have redefined the business-to-consumer relationship, from a transactional interaction to a personalised and protected conversation.

3. Industry X

At the crossroads where technology meets society, an incredible reshaping of the world, as we know it, is taking place. As technology continues to fuse the boundaries between physical and digital, key companies are pioneering in creating services that are at the forefront of this digital shift. In this category, we distinguish the organisations to watch across market verticals.


4. Device

Today mobile hardware acts as the remote control to our lives. This category will celebrate the achievements in hardware developments that are stimulating advancements in the mobile sector. We want to see technology that is changing how consumers interact with devices. This category has a strong reputation for recognising market disruptors ahead of others!

5. Tech4Good

On the journey to intelligent connectivity we applaud the organisations that work tirelessly to ensure that no one gets left behind. The GSMA is committed to connecting everyone and everything to a #BetterFuture. This category celebrates the companies who are dedicated to innovating for the communities which are most in need.

6. Government Leadership

Every year we are delighted to present the Government Excellence Awards to governments who have fostered the true spirit of digitalisation in their national agenda. This year we will once again honour the governments who have pushed the boundaries of innovation.


7. Outstanding Achievement

Behind every technological advancement and zeitgeist shift in the sector there is an individual who has relentlessly dedicated their time, resources and energy to make change possible. This category looks to honour these individuals and companies who have gone above and beyond to better our community.

8. 4YFN Startup

4YFN (4 Years From Now) is the GSMA’s startup business platform that enables startups, investors, corporations and public institutions to discover, create and launch new ventures together, strengthening the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
