The Codie Awards holds the distinction of being the only peer-recognition awards program of its kind in the industry, providing a unique opportunity for companies to earn the praise of their competitors. The Codie Awards program, now in its twenty-first year, remains the standard-bearer for celebrating outstanding achievement and vision in our industry.
In 1986, the Codie Awards were established by the Software Publishers Association (SPA), now the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), so that the pioneers of the then-nascent software industry could evaluate and honor each other's work.
Since its inauguration, the Codie Awards program has carried forward the same vision - to showcase the software and information industry's finest products and services and to honor excellence in corporate achievement and philanthropic efforts.
Many people ask about the origin of the name Codie Award. "Codie" is derived from the word "code" and alludes to the program's basis in the software industry.
This event is FREE for press!
