The 2012 [acronym] Public Sector CAD Awards – Showcase Your Design Achievements

It’s that time again! We’re excited to announce the launch of the 2012 [acronym] Public Sector CAD Awards! If you work in the field of digital design – whether you use AutoCAD, or any other software – we want to know how these tools, combined with your skills and expertise, have helped your agency achieve its goals. About the Contest Now in its second year, the [acronym] Magazine CAD Awards is the only innovation contest that challenges the public sector to share the creative ways it has used digital design/CAD software to improve the performance of your agency and enhance the delivery of citizen-centric services. Last year’s winners and runners up proved that digital design is about so much more than lines on a screen or blueprint. It transforms the way the public sector plans, designs, builds and manages projects – including buildings, roads and highways, public works, manufacturing prototypes, and more. Whether you work with CAD, BIM, simulation, visualization or any other engineering and design software, we want to know the following:
  • How has digital design changed the business of government in your city, county or agency?
  • Have you put new ideas into practice?
  • Has design software helped your agency save time and money?
  • Has digital design transformed how you collaborate with team members and stakeholders?
So give yourself a pat on the back and be recognized by an expert panel of judges and your peers! Winners will be recognized at a virtual awards showcase in early 2013 featuring an exciting keynote from Autodesk’s Lynn Allen, among others. Who Can Enter? The contest which runs through December 1, is open to federal, state and local government agencies, as well as the contractors and consultants that support them (as long as you nominate a project that supports the public sector)! Why Enter? Entering the [acronym] CAD Awards give you the opportunity to share your best practices and achievements with your government peers and with the media. We want to showcase what you’ve achieved and will promote your projects and achievements in the following ways:
  • At the virtual awards ceremony in early 2013 – This unique event that will bring together exciting keynote speakers (including Autodesk’s Lynn Allen), your government peers, and digital design industry experts – all eager to hear what you’ve achieved!
  • Reach thousands of readers online via the website. We’ll feature your achievements in blogs, interviews, videos, and more (if you wish).
  • We’ll also write articles and publish them in a special edition of [acronym] magazine
  • Press and media interviews (if you are ok with that!)
  • On social media
  • And more!
Go on! Submit your nomination for the 2012 CAD Awards before December 1, 2012, for a chance to showcase your achievements.
