Do you know someone who has played an outstanding role in building and growing the Internet? Nominate them for the Internet Hall of Fame 2023. This program recognizes individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to the development and advancement of the global Internet.
The Internet Hall of Fame recognizes a select group of visionaries, leaders, and luminaries who have made significant contributions to the development and advancement of the Internet. In addition to those who have been more visible, the Internet Hall of Fame seeks nominees who have made crucial, behind-the-scenes contributions.
Special consideration may also be given to the Nominee’s lifelong Internet-related accomplishments, contributions to more than one area of the Internet, and the overall benefit of their contributions to society. A successful nomination will clearly define a candidate’s impact beyond participation solely in a limited arena, such as Internet governance, or academia, or politics, as examples.
The nomination requires three (3) endorsement letters from three independent endorsers, in addition to the nomination form. The endorsement letters should come from people both within and beyond the nominee’s geographic region and place of employment, now or at the time of the contribution. An ideal nomination will have the endorsement of a globally diverse set of people with a variety of perspectives on the nominee’s contributions that reinforce the scope and global impact of the nominee’s work.
The nominator must provide the email addresses of the individuals who are to submit the endorsement letters. An automatic email request will be sent to them with a copy of the nomination form, information on the requirements, and how to submit the letters. The nominator will not see the endorsement letters but will be notified when the letters have been submitted and when the nomination is complete.
Allow sufficient time for the endorsement letters to be added to the nomination form. The nominator is responsible for ensuring that all endorsement letters are submitted by the deadline of March 24, 2023 (23:59 UTC).
