An AWS panel will pick seven winners for the practices and partners in innovation categories for the City on a Cloud Innovation Challenge between May and June, AWS said Tuesday.

Teresa Carlson, vice president of the worldwide public sector at AWS, said the contest is intended to recognize municipalities and partners who could help develop cloud computing services for local and regional governments.

AWS will accept entries until May 12 and winners for both categories will be announced on June 25.

Three local governments could win the best practices award with $50,000 in AWS credits each and four developers will be awarded $25,000 each in AWS credits for the partners in innovation award.
