KnowHow NonProfit Study Zone shortlisted for prestigious Nominet Internet Award
KnowHow NonProfit’s StudyZone, which offers bite-size, low-cost online video courses on voluntary sector issues, has been nominated for an award recognising the very best in online achievement and innovation.
StudyZone has been shortlisted for the Nominet Internet Awards 2012, which showcase projects from UK businesses, charities, individuals and public and private sector organisations which help to make the internet a more secure, open, accessible and diverse experience for all.
Under the category ‘online training and education’, StudyZone has been shortlisted for providing practical multimedia courses specifically designed for the voluntary sector. Training is bite-sized, low-cost, accessible, user-led and delivered pro-bono by top voluntary sector trainers and consultants.
The Nominet Internet Awards celebrate the achievements and innovation of UK internet initiatives. The awards are open to any organisation or individual who is doing great work online, whether it benefits their business, the wider economy, local communities or the UK’s internet users in general. Over 65 organisations, initiatives and individuals have been nominated for awards this year. Entries were reviewed by an independent panel of judges, chaired by Rt Hon Stephen Timms, MP. The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony on Thursday 5 July 2012 at the Saatchi Gallery, London.
Each winner’s initiative will be showcased by Nominet at the next meeting of the United Nations’ Internet Governance Forum (IGF), taking place in Baku, Azerbaijan, in November, to help promote and develop industry best practice for the entire global online community.
Cristina Tiberian, Manager of StudyZone says:
"I am thrilled to see StudyZone shortlisted for the Nominet Internet Awards. This nomination will create even more exposure for our innovative online training service which means that more charities and voluntary sector workers will be able to access cost-effective training and, thus, manage their own learning and development in these challenging times. Making the shortlist is also a great recognition of the hard work and dedication that a lot of people, both from KnowHow NonProfit and across the sector, have put into creating and developing this service."
Lesley Cowley, CEO of Nominet says:
"We’re always inspired by the efforts British businesses, charities and individuals make on projects designed to help make the Internet a safe, accessible and helpful place, and this year’s awards has seen an incredibly strong list of candidates. By using the power of the web they are making a real difference to peoples’ lives, and providing a shining example to the rest of the world.”
