Crowdicity, the leading Idea Management platform, has been shortlisted for a prestigious industry award on the back of its work with the United Nations.

Crowdicity has been shortlisted for Best Cloud Project of the Year (Public Sector) at the UK Cloud Awards 2014 – a ceremony to showcase the leading vendors, customers and individuals who are setting the benchmark within the UK Cloud industry.

The shortlisted entry focussed on Crowdicity’s work with the United Nations, which saw the Crowdicity platform used to create the first-ever crowdsourced document to be granted official UN status. The project, Beyond 2015, was a unique global initiative designed to encourage young people to create solutions for social good and inform world leaders about their priorities for the ICT sector.

Crowdicity has been shortlisted among some big names in the Cloud industry, including Google, Amazon Web Services and Zendesk.

Nick Wright, Founder and CEO of Crowdicity, said: “Our work with the United Nations has really put crowdsourcing on the UN’s agenda. It marks a huge shift in the way the UN engages the global population in their policy making. It’s fantastic to see Crowdicity and this innovative work recognised by a panel of industry experts and we hope to continue this level of success with our future UN projects.”

The Award Ceremony, will be held at City Hall, London, on 26th February 2014 and boasts an impressive judging panel of industry experts, journalists and analysts.
