Marilyn Cade and Rafik Dammak have been named joint winners of this year’s ICANN Community Excellence Award, formerly the Ethos Award.

The award acknowledges those community members deemed to have embodied ICANN’s values and devoted a lot of time to community work.

As I previously blogged, policy consultant Cade, who died last year to a wide outpouring of tributes, was pretty much a shoo-in.

“This award is not intended to be a memorial. Instead, it is a well-deserved recognition of Marilyn’s contributions and commitment to ICANN and our multistakeholder community,” the awards selection committee noted.

Dammak has for over a decade contributed “countless volunteer hours” on various ICANN policy working groups, mainly in the GNSO, the committee noted. His impartiality was called out by the selection committee for praise.

He last year stepped in to fill a leadership vacuum in the working group devoted to reviewing Whois privacy policy.
