InternetNZ (Internet New Zealand Inc) and .auda (the Australian Domain Name Administrator) are pleased to announce that entries in the 2010 Australia and New Zealand Internet Best Practice Awards are now open.

The Awards recognise New Zealand and Australian-based organisations, businesses, groups and individuals that have made significant contributions towards the security, openness, diversity and accessibility of the internet.

The award categories are based on the four main themes of the United Nations' Internet Governance Forum (IGF). The categories are:

Best Security Initiative - Initiatives that are at the forefront of developing solutions to security threats, building trust and confidence in the online environment.

Best Openness Initiative - Initiatives that enable Internet users to benefit from increased access to online materials, knowledge or information.

Best Access Initiative - Initiatives that aim to combat the digital divide, facilitating access for groups such as the elderly, disabled or socially disadvantaged.

Best Diversity Initiative - Initiatives that encourage expressions of cultural diversity and identity, including the promotion of multilingualism and indigenous cultures online.

Best Youth Initiative - A project led by a New Zealander or Australian who is under the age of 28 on 20 August 2010 and is eligible for entry under the four main categories.

Entries close Friday, 20 August 2010.
