About the Program

Nowadays, the Internet permeates every aspect of our daily life, allowing people to access information and services online, and interact with each other anytime anywhere. Making websites and mobile applications accessible not only facilitates everyone including disability groups, but also helps facilitating business development and building an inclusive society.


MYNIC Digital Adopters Award is one of MYNIC’s initiatives to encourage local enterprises and organisations to adopt accessibility design in their websites and mobile applications. This initiative is to effectively promote the adoption of accessibility design in websites and mobile applications by enterprises and organisations to the public. With more accessible websites and software become available, we believe people with disabilities can participate equally in society and make substantial contributions to the internet community, economy as well as the social development
