The judges said: “Both these entries showed initiative and judges felt that they were equally important to their respective stations, despite the very different sizes and strengths of the two organisations. The SABC project made excellent use of well documented tools and TIM Engineers made pragmatic use of available resources. Both projects demonstrated end user benefits, either from enhanced services or improved quality and reliability.”

This award is sponsored by the CBA and IBC.
