About the Awards
The 5th Annual Irish Internet Association Net Visionary Awards will take place on the 26th of November 2003 in the Clontarf Castle. The IIA are delighted to welcome Invest NI as headline sponsor for the awards for 2003.

Over the last five years the awards have become the most respected Internet awards, honouring individuals for their contribution to the Irish Internet Industry. Nominated by colleagues, clients, and peers, short listed by IIA member companies and judged by the IIA board of directors, these awards are truly the most prestigious awards on the Industry calendar.

This year a number of additional awards have been added. You do not need to be an IIA member to nominate and there is no cost of entry. The overall Net Visionary Award will be selected from all of the nominations received.
