Nominations for the Nominet Internet Awards 2013 to close soon

Nominet, the not-for-profit organisation best known for running the .uk internet infrastructure, has announced that nominations for the Nominet Internet Awards 2013 will close on 28th March 2013.
The annual awards celebrate the internet as a force for good, recognising and raising awareness of projects and initiatives that are making a difference using the internet.

Nominet is now accepting entries from organisations or individuals who are doing great work online, whether it benefits the wider economy, local communities or UK internet users in general.

This year’s categories include:

• Innovative internet business
• Online skills and training
• Making the internet a safer place
• Doing good online
• Digital innovation in public services

Last year’s winners included; The Raspberry Pi Foundation, a charity aiming to promote the study of computer science and electronics in schools, and Hao2.eu Ltd, which provides employment and training for autistic people via the medium of 3D virtual world technology.
“The internet seems to get its fair share of bad publicity,” said Lesley Cowley, CEO of Nominet. “However, the Nominet Internet Awards allow us to recognise and celebrate good positive internet projects taking place around the UK. Whether they help a small community get online or make an impact on a national scale, we look forward to receiving this year’s entries and being inspired by the great things they’ve achieved.”
