Several changes have been made to the ECI Awards 2017 to make the competition rules more sensible and the whole online entry system more friendly, and to encourage more innovative efforts to enter the competition.
The main differences are shown as below:
We’ve made adjustments to category and subcategory definitions. Policy Innovation becomes an invitation-only category.
Judges are asked to evaluate each entry based on “1+3” new specific criteria.
To help innovations worth investing in get the attention they deserve, works still in the planning stage can enter the competition now as long as they fall into the eligibility time period.
Varieties of Entries
To encourage brick-and-mortar businesses, we’ve attached more importance to the digital innovations of physical products/services than before to convey that Plus Internet should be advocated as much as Internet Plus.
We’ve adapted entry forms to suit the new scoring system.
Online Entry System has been upgraded and the English version is available now.
We’ve introduced a new award – the Best Marketing Innovation of the Year to honor the best work among all the gold winners of the 14 subcategories of Marketing Innovation. The Grand ECI winner will be selected among the winner of the Best Marketing Innovation of the Year and gold winners of the other categories.
Starting from January 1, 2017, entrants have to pay entry fees according to the same global standard.
