Nominations for this year’s Awards closed at midnight on 18 May with over 200 entries in the pot in the eight categories.
These unique awards are organised by AbilityNet and BT and bring together a range of charities and businesses whose work enables people to improve their lives through the use of IT.
Nominations were open to UK-based charities, businesses, public bodies, individuals, social enterprises, schools, colleges, community organisations and anyone else who is using technology for good. Nominations closed at midnight on Friday 18 May 2012 and the winners were announced on 6 July 2012.
The not for profit partners will now shortlist their category down to three entries, which is going to be tough with some categories having over 40 entries. The judges will then meet in June to decide the winners who will be announced at an Award Ceremony in london in July.
A big thank you to everyone who has entered and the best of luck – hope to see you in London.
