Nominet, the UK Registry, is looking for companies and individuals from all over the UK who are doing amazing things with the Internet to enter the 2011 Nominet Internet Awards.
The awards recognise people or organisations that are making a real difference to their communities or society as a whole through the web.
As examples of best practice, winners of the awards can expect to gain international exposure to parliamentarians, academics and the wider Internet community. The awards are run in partnership with Nominet Trust, which invests in initiatives that contribute to a safe and accessible Internet used to improve lives and communities. Last year, three of the finalists went on to receive funding from Nominet Trust.
Entries close in two weeks time – Thursday 28th April – with all submissions to be reviewed by an independent panel of judges chaired by the Rt Hon Alun Michael MP. The award categories this year are:
• Building a networked nation
• Making the Internet safer
• Opening the world of knowledge
• Empowering young people and citizen
• Nurturing powerful local partnerships
