2018 Digital Impact Awards Africa Nominees: See Who Made The Cut.

Kampala, Uganda. Nominees for the 5th Digital Impact Awards Africa are out. Just like in 2017, the 2018 Digital Impact Awards (#DIAA2018) under the “Include Everyone” Program is set to recognize and reward individuals and organizations across Africa that are spearheading the use of digital tools to “not only enhance financial and digital inclusion but also lead to continental economic transformation.”

Slated for 21st September 2018 at Kampala Serena Hotel, DIAA2018, under the theme INCLUDE EVERYONE covers all entities that are using digital tools to improve the livelihood of their clientele. Some of the major categories are Digital Brand of the Year, Best Internet Service Provider, Best Financial Inclusion for the Poor, Best Use of Social Media by Bank, Technology, Utility and Government Agencies among others.

“After proper  scrutiny of all submissions and detailed research, allow me share with you the list of the 2018 Digital Impact Awards nominees. We commend those that are faithfully investing in the digital and financial inclusion journey across the continent, “Innocent Kawooya, the HiPipo CEO noted while releasing the DIAA2018 nominations.

Additionally, in an effort to promote the digitalization of trade processes in Uganda and across Africa, the DIAA board has created a special category named Commendation for Trade Digitization.

“This special recognition (Commendation for Trade Digitization) will go to an individual, government or non-government agency that is spearheading the digitalization of trade through introducing, funding and supporting electronic trade facilitation projects and processes,” Innocent Kawooya noted

The Commendation for Trade Digitization category has no nominees. “The winner will be decided after a thorough scrutiny of the current electronic trade facilitation projects. We shall engage various trade stakeholders before zeroing down on the overall winner.”

In his closing remarks, Mr Kawooya asked the government of Uganda to reconsider its position on OTT / Social media Tax, the same way it did with mobile money tax.

“The past few weeks have been very challenging for those passionate about digital and financial inclusion. It is good to know that the government of Uganda has received feedback from the populace and working to fix the issues raised around mobile money tax. We request it to also find time and review the OTT tax as well.”

Congratulation to all the nominees.

The awards programme will culminate with an unmissable awards ceremony and gala dinner on 21st September  2018 and we'd love for you to join us. Simply book online, email, or call the events team

We look forward to have all the nominees and other players on 21 September 2017 at Kampala Serena Hotel. Contact DIAA team for booking.
