2014 M3AAWG Mary Litynski Award Nominations Now Being Accepted

In 2010 the Messaging, Malware and Mobile Anti-Abuse Working Group (M3AAWG) and the Internet industry as a whole lost a great friend and supporter, Mary Litynski. Her dedication, excellence, perseverance and tireless work behind the scenes of M3AAWG helped make the organization the success that it is today.

Through this award, M3AAWG seeks to bring attention to the remarkable work that is done far from the public eye over a significant period of time — work undertaken by dedicated and driven individuals for the greater good. In doing so, we continue to honor the commitment and legacy of our good friend Mary.

Award Criteria:

  • The nominated person has made a significant contribution to reducing spam, fighting bots or malware, or safeguarding other aspects of online messaging over a significant period.
  • The person's work can be related to messaging on any platform, including mobile devices and social networks.
  • The person's work can be related to a particular country or it can be global in scope.
  • The nominated body of work can be technical, related to public policy, or be educational in nature. In the final analysis, end-users should be safer as a result of the endeavors.
  • The recognized work contributes to building and maintaining a trusted environment for online messaging.

Deadline for submissions is January 15, 2014. To nominate an industry professional or to be considered yourself, click here.
