PIR Announces New .ORG Impact Awards to Recognize Achievements in the .ORG Community

The Public Interest Registry, the nonprofit manager of the .ORG domain, has launched The .ORG Impact Awards, a new program designed to recognize .ORG domain name owners who are using the Internet to empower change around the world. From individuals to large corporations, and small community groups to multinational NGOs, purpose-driven achievements from members of the .ORG community will be honored through this inaugural program.  Nominations are now being accepted from nonprofits, corporations, community groups and members and will remain open through Friday, July 12, 2019.

Nominations Open
Through July 12, 2019

The PIR announcement noted that "unlike other industry award programs, The .ORG Impact Awards does not seek to profit from submissions. In fact, winning individuals and organizations will receive up to $5,000 in a monetary contribution to the nonprofit of their choice, and finalists will receive two complimentary invitations to attend The .ORG Impact Awards Ceremony at The Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. on October 10, 2019 where winners will be announced. Finalists in the “Individual” category also will be offered travel assistance."

Achievement will be honored in the following award categories:    

Individual Awards honor the contribution of an individual to their organization or the broader sector:

  • Innovator Award 

  • Rising Star Award

  • Outstanding Volunteer   

Sector Awards recognize organizational and team accomplishments:

Initiative Awards celebrate achievement in a specific online niche area:

  • Best Social Media Campaign

  • Top #GivingTuesday Campaign

  • Outstanding Online Fundraising Campaign

  • Outstanding Microsite

  • Outstanding Website Redesign

  • Best Integrated Communications Campaign

  • Best Use of Partnerships/Celebrity Endorsements

  • Outstanding Multimedia Content

  • Outstanding Community Relations Campaign 

PIR President and CEO Jon Nevett said, “The .ORG Impact Awards is an opportunity to convene organizations of all types and sizes from around the world to learn from each other, celebrate each other’s accomplishments and strengthen the work being done through .ORG to make the world a better place. The mission-and affinity-driven .ORG community is vast, diverse and incredibly innovative in how it harnesses the power of the Internet to improve the lives of people near and far, and we’re thrilled to shine a spotlight on these accomplishments to help strengthen these stellar .ORGs for the future.”

All award entries must be submitted through a form on The .ORG Impact Awards’ secure online platform and should highlight activities occurring between June 1, 2018 and June 1, 2019. Nominators may submit to more than one category/subcategory, but each submission must be original. All submissions must be in English and there is no cost for submission.
