Business Insider's Unsung Heroes 2012 Survey

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes of Silicon Valley, Silicon Alley, and the rest of the tech sector. Nominate someone who's not a founder, CEO, or investor—someone who did amazing work in 2012 and deserves credit.

* 1. Who's your unsung hero?

* 2. Where does this hero work?

* 3. How do you know this person?

* 4. What did he or she do in 2012? Be as specific as possible and spell out what his or her efforts accomplished. (Note: For the purpose of this story, we're looking for work accomplishments, not nonprofit or public-service efforts outside work.)

* 5. Do you have a photo of this person to which you have the rights—one that either you personally took or one you have permission to use? (By submitting a photo, you grant Business Insider permission to publish it.) Please give the Web address or URL to the image (for example, a Flickr page, a Dropbox link, or other online resource).

* 6. Where can we get more information about this person online—for example, a LinkedIn profile?

* 7. Has this person been written about anywhere, as far as you know? (It's not a deal-killer, but we'd like to know.)

* 8. If so, where has this person been written about? (Include a link or name of publication.)

* 9. Can you share an email address for this person in case we want to verify information?

* 10. What's your name? (Leave blank to submit anonymously.)

* 11. And can you share an email address for yourself in case we have more questions?
