CIO 100 Awards

Every year, the CIO 100 Awards honor 100 companies that demonstrate excellence and achievement in IT.

The process for choosing the CIO 100 honorees is systematic and very competitive. We're looking for companies that are using IT in innovative ways to deliver competitive advantage to the enterprise and enable growth. To be considered for a CIO 100 award, entrants apply using an online application that asks them to identify several different aspects of their achievement. Applications are solicited from hundreds of companies through advertising, newsletters and e-mail. We also collect recommendations from our in-house experts, who nominate organizations which are distinguished for their innovative use of IT. We invite these nominees to apply as well.

Teams of CIO judges review the applications and make initial recommendations about each entrant. We debate how each company stacks up against the others in terms of the depth and breadth of their practices, their creativity, the specific measurable results of their achievements, and the takeaways they can provide to our readers.

Applications for the 2014 CIO 100 awards are now open. Please click here to apply. The early bird application fee of $50 will run through December 1, 2013.

The deadline to submit an application is February 1, 2014. Please contact cio100@cio.com for more information.
