Do you know someone who has made an outstanding contribution to Internet development?

Nominate them for this year’s Jonathan B. Postel Service Award!

Each year, the Internet Society presents the prestigious award to an individual or organization that, like Jon Postel, has made significant contributions to the technological development of the Internet.

The award commemorates Jon Postel’s extraordinary stewardship in the course of his 30-year career in networking.

The chosen candidate will be presented with a USD20,000 honorarium and the signature crystal engraved globe at a global conference with Internet technical leaders later this year.

Previous award winners include Steven Huter for fostering local Internet communities globally, Kimberly Claffy for her contribution to Internet measurement, Kanchana Kanchanasut for accelerating Internet development in Thailand, and Nii Quaynor for driving the spread of the Internet across Africa.

Special emphasis is placed on candidates who have supported and enabled others in addition to their own contributions.

Help us recognize the extraordinary people who have committed themselves to the technological development, growth, and strength of the Internet!

Submit a nomination!

Nomination period ends on 12 June 2020. For questions, email [email protected].
