September 3, 2019
Camera Filming Event

On 27 September, the Internet Society will gather to reveal the fifth class of Internet Hall of Fame inductees, and there are three ways that you can participate in this historic event.  

 The ceremony, which will be held in San José, Costa Rica, will be broadcast via LiveStream, which you can register for in advance, or you can watch it live on Facebook. We will also be Live Tweeting highlights of the induction ceremony as they happen @Internet_hof (#ihof2019).

This ceremony marks the first time the awards have been held in Latin America since the program’s inception. The first Internet Hall of Fame was held in Geneva, Switzerland in 2012, and ceremonies have since been held in Berlin, Hong Kong and Los Angeles. 

Costa Rica was chosen to host the event in part because of the strong example it has set in employing a collaborative approach to Internet governance, and because of the systematic approach it has taken in closing the country’s digital divide.

The 2019 inductees convening in Costa Rica next month hail from Peru, Japan, Brazil, Netherlands, Togo and the U.S. Join us on 27 September to find out who they are, and watch them make history!
