ALL DIGITAL has established the ALL DIGITAL Awards to recognise the achievements of individuals and organisations across Europe that enable people to exploit the benefits and opportunities created by digital transformation.
Thousands of individuals and hundreds of organisations around Europe work daily with communities to empower citizens through technology and the Internet: from teaching digital literacy and online safety to carrying out transactions with government and boosting entrepreneurship, from supporting people’s employability to uniting different stakeholders for ensuring digital inclusion and enabling digital social innovation.
ALL DIGITAL Awards acknowledge their innovation, dedication and the inspiring role they play to many people.

In 2018, ALL DIGITAL Awards will recognise individuals and organisations in four categories:
- Best e-facilitator
