UNESCO Grants Patronage for World Summit Award 2005

24-09-2004 (Paris)
The World Summit Award, a global initiative for selecting and promoting the best in e-content and creativity has now been granted UNESCO’s sponsorship. The Award, that is coordinated by the International Center for New Media in Salzburg, Austria, is organized within the framework of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS).
By granting its sponsorship to the Award, UNESCO recognizes it as an outstanding initiative that contributes to bridging the digital divide by encouraging the creation of locally relevant, high quality multi media content.

The contest for the 2005 Award for best e-content examples in eight categories (Learning, Culture, Science, Government, Health, Business, Entertainment and Inclusion) will be launched in late 2004. The winners will be selected by an international jury and announced within the framework of WSIS in Tunis, in November 2005. The first award was given during WSIS in December 2003, in Geneva.
