As an UN-based initiative, the World Summit Awards select and promote the world’s most outstanding digital content. “Today, our world is almost entirely connected. But in this ocean of products and services, quality content is hard to find and local solutions have a hard time competing with mainstream solutions”, states WSA Chairman Peter A Bruck. “WSA provides the answer to this issue, by promoting local content with global relevance.”
After the national pre-selection period, a jury of eminent experts will come together to evaluate the submissions and select the 40 best products from among hundreds of national nominations and the 6 best young innovators in the Youth category.
The winners will get the chance to present their products at the WSA Global Congres. The event will offer a platform for high-level experts, industry leaders, and government representatives to discuss digital innovation.
