Julian Blake, DigitalAgenda Director and Editor said:

“The Impact Awards celebrate technology that is being used for positive impact rather than just for profit. Our awards highlight the amazing potential for technology to be a force for good. Technology isn’t always seen as a force for good, with understandable public fears about its effects on privacy, child safety and the future of work, but digital also offers the potential to address some of the biggest challenges we face.”
