The London Internet Exchange (LINX) has also been honoured by the Internet Watch Foundation (IWF) for its "frontline role in efforts to eradicate child abuse images from the UK Internet":

The Internet Watch Foundation presented LINX chairman Grahame Davies with a special ‘Achievements and Champions’ award during a House of Commons ‘Corridor Event’. The award recognised the efforts of LINX, the world’s largest Internet exchange, in the frontline of the online battle against child abuse.

IWF chairman Richard Darlington praised LINX for its valuable financial support for the IWF since its founding in 1996 and the prompt action of its members in ‘de-listing’ sources of Internet child abuse images when they are identified.

Grahame Davies said: “As a founding member of IWF, LINX is pleased to support its vital work in combating images of children being abused and congratulates it on achieving such a marked reduction in the incidence of such images hosted in the UK. Although many LINX members are actually based overseas we are united in supporting the IWF’s efforts in eradicating illegal and abusive material originating from the UK.

The UK ISPA received a similar award.
