Broadband provider TalkTalk has begun its annual search for Digital Heroes - people who use technology to help people living in their local community.
Each year, the firm offers cash prizes to regional and national award winners, in a bid to support digital projects and improve levels of IT literacy around Britain.
Dido Harding, Chief Executive at TalkTalk, explained that over the last six years, 62 UK organisations have benefited from the Digital Heroes awards.
Writing for the TalkTalk blog, she noted that every year the awards attract hundreds of nominations from people across the country.
"Since the awards began, they have made an enormous difference to many important projects in local communities around the country," Ms Harding stated.
"With this year's nominations now open, we’re looking forward to finding new and innovative projects showcasing how technology truly is a force for good."
This year, the judging panel includes TalkTalk Chairman Sir Charles Dunstone, UK Digital Champion Baroness Martha Lane Fox, and Lloyd Embley, the Editor-in-Chief at the Daily Mirror.
The panel will select an overall winner to reward with £10,000 to improve their digital project.
