On 3 October, CENTR held the third edition of its Awards at the Bibliothèque Solvay in Brussels. The CENTR Awards aim at highlighting ccTLD registry projects, teams and people that are making a difference in our industry.
During the ceremony, the finalists in each of the five categories presented short videos of their projects or people that were nominated. The evening was a great opportunity to showcase inspiring projects and teams that truly make a difference in the online world and to demonstrate the great spirit of collaboration that gives life to the CENTR community.
A brand new category was also introduced this year: the “Registry of the Year”, first one to be submitted to a vote from registrars. A whopping 105 unique registrars participated in the survey that resulted in a tight race between registries.
This year’s CENTR Awards winners are:
Marketing Campaign Excellence Category: .CA Product Marketing team for its brand awareness and lead generation campaign (CIRA)
Safe and Sound DNS Category: Barbara Povše (Registry.si) & Bert Ten Brinke (SIDN) for the project "Security for Registry.si"
