Intranets guru James Robertson (of StepTwo) just reminded me of the Intranet Innovation Awards 2011, now in it's fifth year. It's one of the few ways to learn of great intranets, because after all, these are usually hidden behind the firewall. (A website project tends to be a lot more visible by its nature...)
I, for one, always enjoy seeing the winner and runners-up in the competition. That's not to say that you should enter just for the benefit of the greater good. If you've ever struggled with getting management buy-in or user engagement, think how nice it would be to be able to point to the glass trophy. As James writes, "Who can say no to an award winner!"
Submissions are open until 31st of May. If you're proud of any aspect of your intranet, this is your chance to showcase it. But if you're too modest for that, this is also a nice opportunity to let us all share and learn.
