There are four categories for which entries can be nominated:

  1. category Consumer solutions (from businesses for consumers)
  2. category Business solutions (within a company or business-to-business)
  3. category Non-profit (government, healthcare and education)
  4. Incentive Award for a pioneering technology, initiative or person.

Behind the scenes, the judges are already preparing for the new edition of the Privacy Awards. We see that people are becoming increasingly aware of their privacy in the digital world. The biggest challenge is getting a grip on the use of your digital data. We have lost that grip to Big Tech along the way. A bit of a feeling of 'we stood there and we watched it'. To get the grip back, we need to join forces. This year, for instance, the Privacy Coalition arise. It is also increasingly on the political agenda. And we try to make a modest contribution to this with the Privacy Awards by highlighting privacy-friendly initiatives. We are extremely eager to see the new entries. Bring it on!", said Magdalena Magala, chairman of the jury.
