The quality of entries for the Best New National ID Card were sufficiently high to merit two awards being made.

The first award in this category went to IDEMIA and the General Directorate of National Security for the new Morocco national eID card, which is the foundation of thecountry’s new national digital ID platform that was launched in April of this year.

Made from polycarbonate, the eID card has a main colour portrait engraved using state-of-the art LASINK™ technology and contains a secondary 3D portrait that is easy to authenticate and has tactile relief for enhanced security. The card also includes a hologram of the map of the country which changes colour when the card is rotated at a 90° angle thanks to the use of Optical Variable Ink with dynamic colours.
