Glasgow, 19th June 2008 - Glasgow based Business Internet Solutions company NSDesign Ltd, today confirmed it had made the shortlist for the prestigious Best Practice Challenge, a competition from Nominet that recognises British organisations, groups or individuals who have embraced the challenge of making the Internet a secure, open, accessible or diverse experience for all. Joining a list of thirty, including industry giants such as Symantec and Barclays, NSDesign are just one of four Scottish organisations to make the 2008 shortlist for the six award categories. Managing Director Gary Ennis says “I’m delighted that NSDesign has been recognised UK-wide for the ‘Raising Industry Standards’ award, confirming that our efforts in customer service, business ethics and corporate social responsibility are among the best in the industry. We’re probably the smallest organisation on the shortlist, so to be mentioned alongside such massive names on the internet is a true achievement and testament to the NSDesign team.” A twelve-strong panel of independent judges, from organisations including the Confederation of British Industry, the British Computer Society, Bebo, the Royal National Institute for the Blind and the Press Association is being chaired by Rt Hon Alun Michael MP: "Having looked at the short list, it is clear that the UK will have a really stunning line up of best practice examples this year. Choosing winners will be even more difficult than last year. The winning entries are sure to spark lively discussions and add substance to international policy debate." The winners will be announced at an award ceremony in London on 9th July 2008. These outstanding entries will be promoted as examples of best practice to industry, government, academia and in the media in the UK and internationally. They will also be invited to take a leading role in the UK preparatory meeting for the next Internet Governance Forum (IGF) meeting in Hyderabad and be showcased at the IGF on 3rd to 6th December as examples of the best of British in the Internet world.
