Over 500 entries have already been received for the first ever app awards, organised by ShortList. Voting is set to close on October 23, so there’s still time to get your vote in.

The UAE’s first ever app awards are to be held on November 9 at Dubai’s Music Hall, where the winners will be announced.

The 15 awards will recognise developers and companies behind apps created in the UAE across a range of sectors. Five nominees will be chosen for each category, and all nominees invited to the event.

Nominees will be considered for the following categories:

  • Food
  • Transport
  • Health & Beauty
  • Sports & Fitness
  • Shopping & Style
  • News & Media
  • Banking & Finance
  • Government Services
  • Life Admin
  • Travel
  • Readers selection

There will also be five categories that we will be chosen by Shortlist magazine. These are:

  • Best app developer
  • Best app design
  • Best app UX
  • App of the Year

Anyone interested in putting themselves forward should email anil.bhoyrul@itp.com , outlining which category they are entering, and a short summary of the app (including when it was launched, number of downloads and how it works). All entries must be from UAE residents on companies based in the UAE.
