In the spirit of its namesake, the Chicago Innovation Awards has partnered with interactive design agency KeyLimeTie, to introduce a free iPhone app to facilitate mobile voting for this years The People’s Choice Award – an award category designed to allow the public to cast their votes for their favorite innovation of the year.
“We’re excited to be able to open up the voting to more people with this state-of-the-art mobile app developed by KeyLimeTie,” said Luke Tanen, Executive Director of the Chicago Innovation Awards, “It’s wonderful to have something so innovative be used to vote on things that are also so innovative.”
For the 11th consecutive year, the Chicago Innovation Awards will celebrate the creative spirit of the Chicago region by honoring its most innovative new products and services. Past winning organizations ranged in size from small to large, were both for-profit and not-for-profit, and came from high tech, low tech or no tech. All previous winners shared a common commitment to innovation.
“The Chicago Innovation Awards app was designed with the intent to provide the nominees with access and exposure to a much larger voting audience than others have had in the past,” said Chris Pautsch, Co-Founder and CEO of KeyLimeTie, “We were delighted and honored to share in the announcement of its availability during last weeks Nominee Reception at the House of Blues, and excited for those who will use it to submit their vote for this year’s Peoples Choice Award.”
Voting for the 2012 People’s Choice Awards is open through October 5, 2012. The 2012 Chicago Innovation Awards presentation will take place on October 22, 2012 at the Harris Theater in Chicago. Tickets are on sale now for the event.
