Uganda Communications Commission extends Telecom awards deadline

23-March-2012

Uganda’s telecom regulator, the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), announced on Thursday 22-March 2012 that it was pushing back the deadline for entry submissions for the Annual Communications Innovation Awards (ACIA 2012).

The original deadline was this Friday, but the UCC has moved the closing date to March 30.

According to a statement from UCC’s Executive Director Godfrey Mutabazi, the measure aims to attract more participants to the event.

Awards to be handed out at the event include: Rural e-Services Award, Green ICT Award, and e-Government Award, Local Content Award, Student Research Award, and The Communications Innovation Award.

“ACIA is a special initiative of the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) aimed to create a channel for identifying, generating interest and recognition of various stakeholders in advancing availability and access to modern and innovative communications services in Uganda,” the UCC said.

“The awards also aim to stimulate further investment in the communications industry and other sectors specifically through promoting the deployment of appropriate communications technologies, applications and services.

It also aims to promote accessibility to communications services for disabled people, and to encourage partnerships with the private sector so as to meet consumer needs,” the UCC concludes.
