Broadband provider TalkTalk has revealed the first details about this year's Digital Heroes Awards.
The company has revealed that the initiative, which was created to recognise people who are making an impact on communities through the use of digital technology, is being supported by the Daily Mirror and Citizens Online this time around.
Through the scheme, 12 regional winners will receive cash grants of £5,000 each to fund their projects, while they will also be given free broadband services.
Mark Schmid, Communications Director of TalkTalk, told the company blog: "From these, one overall winner will be chosen by our judging panel – which includes UK Digital Champion Martha Lane Fox, TalkTalk's Chief Executive Charles Dunstone and Daily Mirror Editor Richard Wallace – to receive £10,000 plus free broadband!"
News of the upcoming awards scheme has come after TalkTalk moved to reassure its customers over the new system it is using to improve its network security.
