While each of the three categories will be acknowledged and celebrated individually, the solutions submitted for any given category should not negatively impact the other ones.

While focusing on excellence within a particular category, the solutions should be designed and implemented in a way that acknowledges and respects the interrelation of the broader sustainable digitalisation landscape.

This approach ensures that the pursuit of innovation and advancement in one area does not come at the expense of the progress made in the other areas.
