Time to Participate in EdTech Awards
As the year is turning to an end, it's an ideal moment to plan which EdTech awards you will join in 2022. Some awards, taking place early in the year are about to close the application round already, so there's no time to be wasted, but it's better to plan now. To make it easy for you, we've created a list of 2022 EdTech awards.
Why Participate in EdTech Awards?
Before submitting your awards application it's good to consider what are the benefits of winning an EdTech award. Succeeding in EdTech product competitions can be a good way to gain recognition and enhance people’s trust in your learning solution. In general, trustworthy external validation is a way to communicate that other experts like this product. And that’s one of the best ways to give confidence to potential buyers.
In the best case, you can also gain valid feedback about your product to support your product development. Consequently, it has become more common to see EdTech companies participating in contests and placing “award winner” badges on a website and marketing materials. So, for sure that works at least to some degree!
There are plenty of awards that an EdTech company can participate in (list below). Naturally, it takes time to submit the application and sometimes there’s a cost involved, but the effort can be well worth it if you succeed.
How to Recognize the Best EdTech Awards?
From the buyers point of view, the most trustworthy awards are the ones where the jury tests the actual solutions, selects the winner based on robust and transparent criteria and gives feedback to all companies explaining also why you didn’t win. If there’s a participation cost involved, we’d see that this would be the minimum amount of work that the organizers should do.
The best awards organizations have gained good recognition for their award, and have clear criteria for the winner selection. As we are more familiar with only a few of the listed awards, we’re not judging which of these are the best ones or which one are the most recognized awards.
You can use this list to find out more about the award and how to participate. We've added a direct link to each award's homepage.
