Consumers are being invited to vote for the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards 2014, which aim to recognise people who use technology for the benefit of their community.

Having received hundreds of entries from across the UK for this year's awards, TalkTalk has whittled them down to a shortlist of just 28.

Each of the nominees is in with the chance of winning £5,000 of funding for their project, should they emerge triumphant in their category - as voted for by members of the public.

A further £5,000 is up for grabs to the overall winner, who will be decided by TalkTalk's judging panel.

Dido Harding, Chief Executive at TalkTalk, said it is "fantastic" to see so many people using technology to benefit their community.

"The fact that we are now in our seventh year of these awards is testament to the number of brilliant projects that are really making a difference and are in need of recognition," she stated.

"As one of the UK’s biggest broadband providers, we have long held the belief that the internet is a force for good."

Ms Harding said the awards "sit front and centre" of its TalkTalk Digital Heroes Foundation, which supports and nurtures initiatives using digital technology in a positive way.

Consumers have until September 25th 2014 to vote across all categories in the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards 2014.

The winners of each category will be invited to a ceremony at the House of Commons, where the overall champion will be announced.

Back in 2013, Scott Freeman - co-founder of The Cybersmile Foundation - was announced as the UK winner and the recipient of £10,000 funding.

The charity provides advice and support to those people affected by cyber-bullying and their families.
