Another year of the Tech4Good Awards is over, and what a brilliant year it’s been. We’ve learnt about some fantastic individuals and organisations that are using technology to make the world a better place – both here in the UK or in some of the poorest and remotest parts of the world.


Here are the winners of the Tech4Good Awards 2014:

  • Accessibility Award: SpecialEffect
  • BT Ingenious Award: Buffalo Grid
  • Community Impact Award: WIMPS (Where Is My Public Service)
  • Digital Health Award: PEEK
  • Digital Skills Award: UCAnDoIT
  • IT Volunteer of the Year Award: Craig Oxley-Brookes
  • Tech4Good Youth Award: Ryan McMurdo
  • Tech4Good People’s Award: UCanDoIT
  • Judges’ Award: Jimmy Wales/Wikipedia
  • Winner of Winners Award: SpecialEffect

The judges certainly didn’t have it easy this year – we received over 200 nominations, but only 23 made it to the finals and our Judging panel had an almost impossible task choosing the winners. We didn’t leave it entirely up to the judges though – we received a staggering 17,500 votes for the People’s Award and the guests at the Awards Ceremony used glowstick voting to chose the Winner of Winners Award – after broadcaster Mariella Frostrup had interviewed them all live on stage.

Thanks again to everyone who nominated, voted and shouted about the Tech4Good Awards – and congratulations to all of this year’s fantastic winners, finalists and nominees.

And thanks to everyone who joined us at the Awards ceremony, with a very special thanks to Hannah Cockroft MBE and Mariella Frostrup for hosting the Awards Ceremony.
