HID’s Bahrain ePassport solution wins multiple awards


HID has recently achieved global recognition for its Bahrain ePassport project, which has been awarded multiple different honours.

These include the London Design Awards, the High Security Printing Award and the iF Design Award. Craig Sandness, Senior VP and Managing Director for Citizen Identity at HID, said, “Our design philosophy is centred around seamlessly weaving security into the fabric of the document’s design.

“The Bahrain ePassport is a prime example of this approach, where innovation meets artistry. This is not just our success; it’s a shared victory with our Bahraini partners, local artists, and calligraphers.

“Together, we’ve crafted a document that is as secure as it is symbolic of Bahrain’s rich heritage.”

HID’s work on the Bahrain ePassport has been recognised across several categories in the London Design Awards, including Gold awards in Service Design for Government, Cultural and Best User Experience categories.

In addition, it has won the High Security Printing Award for Best New ePassport for EMEA and the iF Design Award in the Publications.

“As we celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Bahrain ePassport, we look forward to continuing our journey of innovation,” adds Sandness. “We invite governments and organisations worldwide to join us in this journey of creating secure, innovative solutions that pave the way for the future of identity documentation.”
