Earlier in the year, ICDPPC member authorities were invited to submit entries to the inaugural ICDPPC Global Privacy and Data Protection Awards. More than 90 entries were received before the closing date of 28 April.
A complete list of finalists in the 4 categories is available here. Winners will be announced at the 39th Conference in Hong Kong in September. In addition ‘the People’s Choice Award’ will also be announced at the 39th Conference.
You can find entries for the four categories on their individual pages by using the dropdown menu of the news & events tab.
Entries relate to any initiative taken by a member authority in 2016 or early in 2017. Initiatives may include anything at all. Without limitation examples might include any guidance resource, investigation, tool, publication, video, conference, website, partnership, poster, speech, policy, app, intervention …
Member authorities were invited to submit as many entries as they wish. In addition to awards in each category there will be an overall Chair’s Award selected from all the entries. This is a great way to share with your colleagues some of your authority’s most successful initiatives from 2016.
How to enter (entries now closed)

What happens to the entries?
Details of the entries will be posted on the ICDPPC website for the information of members and the public about the interesting initiatives being taken by member authorities. Selected entries may be featured in the ICDPPC newsletter. The website and newsletter coverage is intended to showcase good ideas and encourage innovation.
Summaries of the entries will be uploaded progressively to the website by the Secretariat as they are received. To see those received so far please go to the following pages:
- Research entries
- Dispute resolution, compliance and enforcement entries
- Education and advocacy entries
- Use of online tools entries
The entries will be judged by the ICDPPC Chair, or people assisting the Chair, to enable the winning entries to be selected prior to the 39th Conference in Hong Kong. Winners will be formally recognised but there will be no prizes.
