Hi everybody,

Just wanted to let you know that the Access Tech Innovation Prize awards
ceremony was held on Monday night. I was delighted to be able to meet
and talk to many of those who attended. In case you missed the live
tweets of the results, here are the winners:

Blackout Resilience Award went to Briar

Making Crypto Easy Award went to the LEAP Encryption Access Project

Freedom of Expression Award went to Open Observatory of Network
Interference (OONI)

Grassroots Technology Award went to the Flashproxy Facebook app from the
Open Technology Institute (OTI)

The Facebook Award was split among all four finalists: Social Media for
Democracy, Map Kibera Trust, BigWebNoise, and Seven Sisters Social Project

For more details on all the award winners including runners up and
honorable mentions please visit the following blog post:

At Access we are very much looking forward to further assisting all 22
of the awarded projects over the next 12 months, and to hosting the 2013
Access Tech Innovation Prize.

All the very best,
