Nominate Your Candidate for the Internet Pioneer Award
The Internet Pioneer Award Show of the festival is on Wednesday, June 3. The awards are given to pioneers whose ideas have improved or promoted the use of the internet in significant ways. We will be looking at achievements that go as far back as 20 years, so please do not limit your candidates to recent years. One award will be given for each category. The Internet Pioneer Award is proudly presented in partnership with Jyllands-Posten og European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.
The categories for nominations:
A technological breakthrough that has had significant impact on the usefulness and use of the internet.
Services and/or Applications
An application or service that has lead more people to use the internet or let people use it in new ways.
An idea that has led to the internet being used for non-commercial purposes within the fields of sustainability, democracy, citizenship or diversity.
