TalkTalk is now inviting members of the public to vote for the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards 2011, having named 37 "amazing finalists".
The broadband provider has received a record number of nominations this year, and according to Chief Executive Dido Harding, each was deserving of an award.
It is now up to the general public to decide who wins the regional honours – and TalkTalk is hoping to eclipse the 140,000 votes cast in 2010.
The award scheme recognises the efforts of people who harness digital technology to bring about positive social change in their communities.
Nominees with the most votes from each of the twelve regions will be named their region's Digital Hero and awarded a £5,000 grant at a ceremony at the House of Lords.
One of those 12 regional winners will be crowned the overall UK Digital Hero and receive a £10,000 grant for their project.
"Whether you're rooting for a particular finalist or are simply interested in seeing how these inspirational candidates are using digital technology to do amazing things in their communities, visit www.talktalk.co.uk/digitalheroes to see the 37 finalist entries and cast your all-important votes," Ms Harding urged.
"Votes can also be cast for any region – not just your own – and we hope you have as much fun choosing your Digital Heroes as we did selecting the finalist."
Voting is now open and ends on Sunday November 13th 2011.
