The 2012 .CA Impact Awards  recognize youth, educators, not-for-profit and public organizations, small businesses and web developers and designers for their innovation and the impact of their .CA websites and applications.
“The .CA Impact Awards is truly unique amongst awards programs,” says Byron Holland, President and CEO of the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA). “By celebrating .CA websites that make an impact, we are recognizing the Internet as a powerful agent of social change.”
CIRA is looking for people and organizations that use their .CA websites to make a positive difference in the lives of their users and those around them. Impact can be social, cultural, political, technological, or economic.
For its second iteration, the Impact Awards is seeking entries in four categories: Public Sector and Not-for-Profit, eLearning, Small Business and Applications. Entries for the 2012 awards will be received until March 23, 2012.
Winners of the Impact Awards will receive $5,000 each and the added visibility which comes from winning a national award.
