TalkTalk is seeking nominations for the Digital Heroes Awards 2012, which are designed to celebrate inspirational people who use digital technology to benefit their community.

Over the last five years, the awards - in association with Citizens Online and The Mirror, and supported by Go ON UK - have offered people the chance to win funding for new or existing digital projects.

This year, 12 schemes from around the country will be awarded a £5,000 grant, with one overall winner receiving £10,000.

And a new category is being launched for children and young people aged up to 18, with the Young Digital Hero receiving £4,000 for their chosen charity and an Apple MacBook Air.

Three nominees will be shortlisted for each of the 12 regions and the youth category, and these will be put to a public vote, ahead of an awards ceremony at the House of Commons in London.

The most popular nominee will be selected as the TalkTalk Digital Hero.

In order to qualify for the Digital Heroes Awards 2012, the project must use digital technology to solve a social problem or improve people's lives, and must not be a commercial enterprise.
