About the 2012 awards

The European Commission established the e-Inclusion Awards to raise awareness, encourage participation and recognise excellence and good practice in using ICT and digital technology to tackle social and digital exclusion across Europe. We want to collect all the great practice across Europe in supporting people to go online and the stories of individuals who have benefitted from their internet experience. These awards will collect information about impact through an application form. We are also asking for audio visual materials that express your successes – stories told on blogs, videos, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
