WSA EXPERT PANEL 2007 – CALL FOR NOMINATIONS!
Again this year and for the third time, the World Summit Award (WSA) is running a world wide call for nominations for the WSA ’07 Expert Panel – a selection of most eminent experts from each of the 191 United Nations’ member states. Only one expert per country will be selected to be responsible for the selection of the national best products and applications in quality e-Content for the WSA Global Contest 2007.
The World Summit Award is a global initiative to select and promote the world’s best e-Content, started in 2003 in the framework of the United Nations’ World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). This is done through national contests, a bi-annual global contest, and numerous content-focused national and international conferences and workshops. WSA is an invitation project and a global hub for everyone, who sees the crucial importance of excellent e-Content creation within the new Information Society. As of today, 168 countries are actively involved in the initiative. The project is officially supported by UNESCO, UNIDO and the GAID.
The main task of expert panel members is to select and propose the eight best practice examples in e-content & creativity from their country. The selection shall be made according to the eight WSA categories and guidelines. All nominated products will be evaluated by the WSA Grand Jury, held in September 07 in Dubrovnik, and the 40 best and most creative solutions will be selected.
The deadline for selecting the projects is July 2007.
