Organized every two years by CENTR, the European organisation that counts more than 50 registries in the world, the CENTR Awards ceremony aims at rewarding the domain name industry through 5 categories.
For the second time in a row, Afnic is selected in two categories :
- « Research and Development » for its new DNS checking tool Zonemaster, developed with the Swedish registry IIS.
- « Contributor of the year » for Afnic CEO, Mathieu Weill, and his action as co-chair of the ICANN Accountability CCWG. He has been selected in this category with Lise Fuhr, co-chair of the « IANA Stewardship » CWG.
For the « Research and Development » category, the winner will be selected by a jury composed of 8 professionals of the Internet industry (ICANN, IANA, Netnod, LACTLD, APTLD, AfTLD, the European Commission…).
For the « Contributor of the year » category, the winners will be selected by the votes of the registries member of CENTR.
The results of the jury and the votes will be revealed during a ceremony that will take place in Brussels on 7 October.
