Since the nominations period opened on the 4th March we’ve received some fantastic entries. From individuals giving up their time to volunteer in their local community, to innovative organisations working tirelessly to help people turn their lives around through the power of digital technology.
If you’re not sure whether you should enter yourself, the company that you work for, the organisation that you volunteer with or a charity that you think should win one of our seven Awards, then read our series of Tech4Good Impact blogs – it may persuade you otherwise.
Find out what Lifelites have been up to since they won two Awards back in 2011, in our interview with Simone Enefer-Doy, CEO:
“The Tech4Good Awards have helped me think more ambitiously, and achieve goals that I once thought were out of reach. It’s helped us to sell our cause to potential funders, raising an extra £100k in the first year to over half a million in 2013.”
We also caught up with BT Ingenious Award winners BuffaloGrid to find out what’s changed for them in the space of just a few short months:
“After we won we secured a deal with the Indian government and are now part of ‘Karnataka Mobile One’, an effort to give people in the state of Karnataka access to government services using their mobile phone.”
And if that doesn’t convince you, take a look at the list of our confirmed judges so far, who will all be reading through each and every entry form before selecting the finalists for each Award. This year’s judges include Anna Bawden, Deputy Editor of Society Guardian and Education Guardian, Anna Geraghty, Head of Marketing, Communications and Training at Tinder Foundation, and Jean Irvine OBE, Chair of the IT Accessibility Panel.
