ISPA is calling upon the public to nominate their Internet Hero for 2018, to be crowned at ISPA’s 20th Awards. The deadline for nominations is the 31st May, so we ask that you act fast!

The ISPA Awards would not be possible without the dedicated support of our sponsors, Zen and Magrathea

Do you know an organisation, or an individual, who has gone above and beyond to help the internet industry, made a real difference to the online world or revolutionised the way we use the internet?

From GDPR to addressing cyber security threats and new Age Verification procedures, there has been no shortage of subjects for the internet industry to consider this year. The Awards are an excellent opportunity to recognise the efforts made by organisations and individuals to improve the internet, whilst pausing for thought on many of the issues facing this vital industry.

ISPA Secretary General, Nicholas Lansman said: “As our longest running category, the Internet Hero Award provides an excellent opportunity to recognise the work done by individuals and organisations to improve the industry, whilst reflecting on the serious issues we have faced. We ask the public to have a think about who they would like to see take home the much-coveted Internet Hero Award in 2018.”
