EFF Awards 2022

Event Description

Thursday, November 10th at 7:00 - 8:30 PM Pacific!

We are proud to present awards to this year’s winners:

Alaa Abd El-Fattah: EFF Award for Democratic Reform Advocacy
Digital Defense Fund: EFF Award for Civil Rights Technology
Kyle Wiens: EFF Award for Right to Repair Advocacy

For thirty years, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has opened nominations to the public to recognize leaders on the electronic frontier who are extending freedom and innovation in technology. EFF’s annual Pioneer Award Ceremony celebrated the longtime stalwarts working on behalf of technology users, both in the public eye and behind the scenes.

This year, we’re taking a new step to recognize the ways in which the digital world has fused with modern life. We invite you to celebrate the first annual EFF Awards from anywhere in the world!
