Smart Content for Smart People
Our goal: Selecting the world's most outstanding e-Content, putting the UN-WSIS targets for the information society into action.
The World Summit Award (WSA) is the global follow-up initiative of the United Nations World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) organised by the International Center for New Media (ICNM), Salzburg, Austria. It partners with the key UN organisations and agencies in the framework of the UN Geneva Agenda and the Tunis Action Plan and selects and promotes the world's best e-Content and innovative ICT applications; to date more than 160 countries are actively involved.
Through national pre-selections and contests together with a global jury process, WSA demonstrates the local diversity and rich creativity of ICT use. WSA is a global hub for everyone who values the crucial importance of local content to make today’s information society more inclusive.
Today, our world is entirely connected. We are surrounded by smart devices and applications for web and mobile phones are everywhere. But in an ocean of products and services, good e-content is hard to find. How do you know what really makes a difference? And how do local developers find a global stage?
The World Summit Award promotes smart content for smart people. On a biennial basis, it awards e-Content that contributes to a true knowledge society and promotes it at a global congress. Join the World Summit Award to put your product on a global stage, find out what’s best in e-Content and discuss with internationally renowned speakers and experts.
