WSA 2024. Nominations through national experts

What is WSA?

WSA (World Summit Awards) is a nomination based award system, inviting all UN member states to participate. WSA selects and promotes local digital innovation improving society. It is a non-monetary award system with a focus on sustainable knowledge transfer through a worldwide network. Winners gain network capital and join a global support network, instead of a one-time financial reward.

Invitation to participate - how to get nominated?

Each country has a national WSA representation – the WSA National Expert. The WSA national experts are carrying out the local pre-selection for WSA, through national contests or national Expert panel selection. To participate in WSA, you need to be nominated by a WSA National Expert as the best national digital application in one of the 8 categories.

Nominations are now invited for the World Summit Awards 2024. They are scouting for the best digital local impact solutions of global significance!
Submissions for WSA 2023 can contain all digital content with a clear impact, such as: apps, webpages, applications for wearables, kiosk installations, SMS based products, mobile and online games, and interactive productions. There is no limitation regarding the platforms or channels the projects work with. If you'd like to be nominated, please contact your National Expert in one of the 182 UN member countries.
