Two championship awards went to Cebu City, and one each for the province of Cebu and the municipality of Loon, province of Bohol. The province of Davao del Norte won all the first place trophies for Mindanao.

The DCP eGOV Awards started in 2012 as the Awards for Excellence in Governance through ICT for Local Government Units (eGov Awards) initiated by the National ICT Confederation of the Philippines (NICP) with the support of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) and Cyber City Teleservices Philippines,

This year, the Department of Information and Communication Technology (DICT) adopted the project under its Digital Cities PH framework. The awards recognize local government units (LGUs) for their best practices in utilizing ICT to effectively and efficiently deliver its public services directly to its constituents and other stakeholders.

There are six categories, namely Customer Empowerment (G2C), Business Empowerment (G2B), Government Inter-Operability (G2G), Digital Finance (G2P), Data-Driven Governance (D2G) and Systems for Global Competitiveness (G2W). For each category, there three levels – for provinces, municipalities and cities. All entries are judges according to four criteria, namely innovative management, impact or the major results, effects and benefits of the system, relevance to the overall objectives of the local government, and replication potential and sustainability.
