World Summit Awards

'WSA-mobile's goal is to find out what works in different markets and in different parts of the world and what really makes a difference for the people in remote villages and global mega-cities' explains Peter A Bruck chairman of the WSA-mobile. The World Summit Award-mobile is an UN-based initiative that selects and showcases the world's best mobile content to bridge the digital gap and put UN-WSIS targets into action.

An international jury of renowned IT experts and industry leaders will evaluate this year's nominated products. Jury members come from all continents and have backgrounds in the creative industries telecommunication advertising journalism and research as well as in teaching. The jury also includes representatives of international organisations in the ICT-for-development field.

 'It is not a product's commercial success that matters most for the jury' emphasises Bruck The jury will judge the value of the content as well as the product's design and its technical realisation. Furthermore each nominee's contribution to bridging the digital divide will play a central role for the jury.
