The Internet Service Providers’ Association (ISPA) has begun its annual hunt for the 2022 internet hero and villain.
We are seeking nominations from the members of the public by 28th October. To submit your nominations for either the Internet Hero or Villain please submit the name of the individual/ organisation to email@example.com, or on social media using the hashtag #internethero or #internetvillain
The Hero & Villain awards provide the opportunity to celebrate the good and great in the industry, whilst also highlighting in a light-hearted manner the individuals or organisations that have had a negative impact on the internet.
Do you know an organisation, or an individual, who has gone above and beyond to contribute to the UK’s connective capabilities and the exponential increase in deployment of gigabit capable fibre? Or someone who has worked tirelessly to ensure the safety and security of end users? The awards are an excellent opportunity to celebrate those who have dedicated themselves to the digital and connective improvement of the UK.
Similarly, in a turbulent year, which has seen a cost-of-living crisis, global conflict, political turmoil at home and the increased fracturing of the Internet. Now is your chance to highlight those who have caused more harm than good.
New ISPA Chair, Steve Leighton commented “The annual ISPA awards is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all things internet over the past 12 months. As part of this, the Internet Hero & Villain awards provide a great opportunity to celebrate those who have contributed to our sector in the past year, whilst also reflecting on some of the serious issues we have faced. We look forward to the sector and the public nominations.”
