ABOUT THE WORLD SUMMIT AWARD Prof. Dr. Peter A. Bruck, WSA Chairman

WSA uses the mechanisms of a contest and an independent jury process to select, demonstrate and promote outstanding content and mobile solutions with global relevance.

Mobile devices are the closest and most critical objects for people in today’s information society. The mobile revolution has reached all sections of society & access to mobile networks has become a primal factor for everyone’s life. Mobile content developers create exciting content and innovative applications that do more than just meet basic needs of communication. 04


They impact the daily lives of millions with mobile content and apps that connect minds. The WSA promotes and awards local innovations that have an impact on society and are best practice examples. The activities of the World Summit Award are conducted within the framework of the United Nations’ (WSIS - Plan of Action), in collaboration with UNESCO, UNIDO and ITU.
