WSIS has launched its 2018 Prizes procedure

04.12.2017

WSIS Prizes is a unique international contest developed in response to requests from the WSIS stakeholders to create an effective mechanism to evaluate and recognize individuals, governments, civil society, local, regional and international agencies, research institutions and private-sector companies for outstanding success in implementing development oriented strategies that leverage the power of ICTs as an enabler of the development.

All stakeholders are urged to encourage their networks to join the WSIS Prizes process, including the multistakeholder open consultation process for the WSIS Forum 2018, in order to ensure that all features correspond to the real needs of the WSIS implementation process towards 2025. Phase one will open the call for submissions to the contest of the WSIS Prize 2018. Starting from 11 September 2017 until 2 January 2018, all stakeholders are invited to submit WSIS related projects to the WSIS Prize 2018 contest. In order to process the submission, stakeholders are requested to complete the submission form for WSIS Prize 2018 online here.
