About the TalkTalk
Digital Heroes Awards
Welcome to the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards 2014, celebrating inspirational people who use digital technology to make their communities, and Britain, Better Off.
The TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards, in association with Citizens Online and The Mirror and backed by Go ON UK, was the UK’s first scheme recognising people who harness the internet to bring about positive social change.
TalkTalk is proud to be championing heroes from all over Britain who use technology for good. For over six years the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards has recognised and rewarded little and local projects from all across the country.
The scheme provides much needed funding, with each Digital Hero awarded £5,000 and the overall Digital Hero, as selected by our panel of judges, receiving £10,000. The Digital Heroes will be recognised at a ceremony at the House of Commons in London where their great work will be showcased to politicians and other key influencers in the world of technology.
This year the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards has replaced it’s regional categories with eight new themed categories to find the most inspirational and creative individuals using technology for good. The nation’s Next Generation Digital Hero still remains a special category, recognising a young person aged up to 18 years who stands to win £4,000 for their chosen charity and an Apple MacBook Air.
The nine category winners are selected by a public vote. The overall winner for the Awards is selected by our esteemed panel of judges.
Voting is now open! The nominees for all nine categories have been shortlisted and are ready for your vote. Voting closes on Thursday the 25th September and category winners will be announced on the 29th September.
