2023 CRF Innovation Award

We are pleased to announce the launch of the 2023 CRF Innovation Award, to celebrate the spirit of innovation and to honour CRF member jurisdictions which have successfully put in place world-class initiatives that have positively impacted their stakeholders. The CRF Innovation Award was first introduced in 2020.

Despite the Covid-19 pandemic disrupting operations and livelihoods worldwide, our member jurisdictions have endeavoured to implement creative solutions to enable their stakeholders to carry on operations, strengthened the digital capabilities of their own registries, or adapted to the changing circumstances and transformed critical registry functions.

We would like to invite you to submit an entry for the 2023 CRF Innovation Award, and share about the initiatives you have implemented to improve service delivery and operational efficiency.

The awards are open to CRF members only, and are applicable for projects implemented in 2021 or 2022. The submissions will be judged by a panel made up of CRF Executive Committee members. A total of five prizes will be awarded to deserving entries, and winners will each receive a plaque and cash of up to USD 500.00.

Submission for the 2023 CRF Innovation Award is by application form and closes on Saturday, 31st December 2022. Please email your submission to CRF Secretary at secretary@corporateregistersforum.org
