02 Sep,2013

Nominations are now open for The Yahoo! Internet for Good Gold Standard Award, which recognises excellence in the use of the internet in promoting charitable causes and community engagement.

 

Now in its second year, the award is conducted in partnership between Yahoo! and PublicAffairsAsia, the network for senior professionals involved in public affairs, corporate communications, policy-making and regulation.

 

Entries should be lodged by September 27 (or by October 5 subject to prior notification) and entry packs can be downloaded from http://www.publicaffairsasia.net/goldstandard/internetforgood.zip

 

Last year, the award was secured by Sonokids Australia which was honoured in recognition of the All Abilities ePlayground project which is directed at increasing internet access to young children with disabilities.

 

Commenting on the award, Nick O’Donnell, Yahoo’s Regional Manager of Public Policy for Asia Pacific said: “We are delighted to once again support The Gold Standard Award. Our Yahoo! For Good initiative encourages all of our employees around the world to ‘Make Good a Daily Habit’.”

 

Mark O’Brien, Public Affairs Asia’sVice President, added:  “This exciting category demonstrates that the internet is more than just a business tool or a source of personal entertainment.  It can play a key role in advancing good causes and community engagement and we look forward again to receiving entries from across the Asia Pacific region.”
