Welcome to the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards 2012, with Citizens Online, celebrating inspirational people who use digital technology to benefit their community.
About the awards
The TalkTalk Digital Heroes Awards, with Citizens Online, is the UK’s only competition recognising people who harness digital technology to bring about positive social change in their communities.
Twelve projects from around the country were awarded a £5,000 grant, with one overall winner getting £10,000. This year we also launched a new category for children and young people aged up to 18 years, with the Young Digital Hero receiving £4,000 for their chosen charity and an Apple MacBook Air.
The winners were decided by public vote and were honoured at an awards ceremony at the House of Commons in London. View all the winners and finalists here .
