Celebrating excellence in the sector

The ICCAs, presented by TCCA, are the most prestigious awards in critical communications. Celebrating excellence in the sector, the highly anticipated programme recognises the success of products, organisations and individuals that have pushed boundaries and capabilities within the field. 

An expert panel of independent judges take all aspects of entries into consideration and are looking to reward the best and most innovative work, both in terms of the technology itself, and how it is being rolled out and used on the frontline.

The individuals behind these innovations are what fuels the sector, and the ICCAs acknowledge the most influential personalities, with categories including TCCA Young Engineer of the Year and the Phil Kidner Outstanding Contribution to Critical Communications award, named in honour of the late TCCA CEO.

“We are honored to be awarded in the International Critical Communications Awards in the category of ‘Emerging technology, product or solution’ with our Nokia Drone Networks solution. This is the first time ever, even for Nokia as a company, to be awarded in the ICCAs, so this is a big win, not only for the Nokia Drone Networks team, but also for the whole company. We know this is a big recognition in the public safety space. A big thank you to the TCCA organization and the judges.”
