What are the eligibility requirements for the IoT Breakthrough Awards?

The IoT Breakthrough Awards competition is open to all individuals, companies, and organizations involved in producing Internet of Things products, solutions, and services.


Awards are available to any company around the world without geographical limitations.


To be eligible, products or services submitted in an entry must have been produced after August 1, 2021 (2-year window). For platform and product entries, updates and refreshes to legacy solutions are acceptable if those updates have taken place after August 1, 2021.


At the time and date of submitting an entry online, entrants confirm that the information supplied is truthful and accurate. If the information is subsequently found to be inaccurate or incorrect, the entry or entries will be disqualified.

How do I submit my nomination?

The award submission process is simple. Simply visit the nominations page and fill out the required form prior to October 6, 2023.


The award submission process is intentionally streamlined, focused on the simple question of “How Does your Product, Service or Company Break Through the Crowded IoT market,” and we ask that nominations are kept to approximately 500 words or less.


Entries will be treated by IoT Breakthrough as confidential and the content of the nominations will not be publicly published without consent of the nominee.


Note that emailed or hard copy submission forms will not be accepted.


You may submit the same product, solution or company in multiple categories.
