Every year, the prestigious ICMA Élan Awards cast a spotlight on the best of the best in the global card industry, honoring world-class achievements in both card design and technological innovation. Widely acknowledged as the most renowned showcase for card excellence, the coveted Élan Awards distinguish ICMA manufacturer, supplier and personalization/fulfillment members before peers and customers as industry leaders. The Élan Awards celebrate ICMA members' commitment to the design quality and technical advances that drive the future of the global card industry, which is ultimately the true winner in this acclaimed program

Now in its 18th year, the ICMA Élan Awards gathered entries from around the world to recognize innovative card designs, technologies, and other criteria that establish the global vanguard for card manufacturing. The distinction of an Élan Award offers significant promotional opportunities for high-profile industry recognition and visibility.

Open to ICMA members only, the Élan Awards were presented at the ICMA 25th anniversary EXPO awards dinner in Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday, March 31, 2015. With the exception of the People's Choice award, an independent panel of card industry experts recognizes one winner and two finalists for each award category. Awards are bestowed upon and issued to both winning manufacturers, personalizers, suppliers and their customers.

We are proud to say that the CIVAMPEMS Solution project developed by Botosoft Technologies Limited for the West African Examinations Council was among the finalists in the category of Personalization and Fulfilment (P & F) Product, Service or Project.
