Awards Categories & Evaluation Criteria
  • The categories for the Radiant Awards are listed below. Entries can be submitted by either a nominee government agency or a nominating organisation such as a partner or technology provider. Awards should be accepted by representatives of the government identity scheme operator and the technology consortium responsible for implementing the scheme.
  • There are 4 categories of Radiant Awards, as listed below. In 3 of the 4 categories there is more than one award available.
  • Entrants for the Radiant Awards must choose, on the entry form, the primary category in which they wish to enter their submission. Entrants can also choose a secondary category in which the entry could be considered. Therefore the same entry can be submitted for consideration in 2 different categories.
  • Any winning entry cannot be submitted for the same category in a following year, although it could be submitted in a different category. Here “same entry” refers to the same aspect of the same electronic identity scheme. However an electronic identity scheme that wins a Radiant Award may be eligible for submission to the same category in a following year if the scheme has undergone significant redevelopment with new capabilities and services. This will depend on the significance of the new development (determination of “significant” will be decided by the jury and their decision will be final).
  • The categories and proposed evaluation criteria for the Radiant Awards are listed below. Radiant Awards entrants can submit the same entry for a maximum of 2 categories. Evaluation criteria will vary for each of the 4 categories, details below, but the maximum number of points is the same.
  • Radiant Vision Award (1)

    The Radiant Vision Award recognises forward thinking ideas that have led to significant innovations in how national electronic identity schemes are planned, designed, developed or deployed. Judges will be looking for vision, foresight and imagination. All aspects of identity systems, including but not limited to architectures, processes or technologies, are eligible for consideration if they enable a quantum leap in public sector identity applications and services.

    Evaluation Criteria Marking
    Vision and forward thinking 2 points
    Imagination and creativity 2 points
    Quantum leap in public sector identity services 2 points
    Impact on the electronic identity ecosystem 2 points
    Benefits delivered to citizens and residents 2 points
    TOTAL 10 points
  • Radiant Pioneer Award (2)

    The Radiant Pioneer Award recognises pioneering new uses or applications of smart technology in public sector identity schemes. The technology may or may not be newly developed. Judges will be looking for submissions where public sector identity systems use technology in new ways that have not previously been deployed. Awards will be made to the two submissions where the pioneering use of the smart technology created the most significant outcome.

    Evaluation Criteria Marking
    Pioneering application of smart technology (idea) 2 points
    Development of the smart technology 2 points
    "Using technology in new ways" 2 points
    Benefits for government 2 points
    Outcomes created for citizens and residents 2 points
    TOTAL 10 points
  • Radiant Launch Award (4)

    The Radiant Launch Awards are for the 4 most significant deployments (excluding pilots) of public sector identity schemes, applications or services in the last 18 months. Up to four awards are available depending upon the quality of submissions. Key considerations for judges will be objectives of the identity scheme; planning, development and deployment challenges; smoothness of rollout; technologies used; and benefits delivered to citizens, residents and government to date.

    Evaluation Criteria Marking
    Design and planning 2 points
    Development and deployment 2 points
    Efficiency of rollout (challenges overcome) 2 points
    eID technologies (open, future proof, flexible,..) 2 points
    Benefits for government, citizens and residents 2 points
    TOTAL 10 points
  • Radiant Service Award (2)

    The Radiant Service Award is for a national electronic identity scheme that has consistently delivered exemplary services to citizens and residents over a period of at least 5 years. Judges will be considering submissions from the perspective of citizens and looking for national eID schemes that have not only provided broader and more efficient access to government but also made life easier and more convenient for citizens and residents. Up to two awards are available.

    Evaluation Criteria Marking
    Years of operation (5+=0, 7=1, 10=2) 2 points
    Operational track record 2 points
    Breadth (number and richness) of services 2 points
    Long-term benefits for government 2 points
    Outcomes created for citizens and residents 2 points
    TOTAL 10 points
