Cairo ICT 2012 is hosting the World Summit Award (WSA), a global activity to select and promote the world's best e-Content and most innovative ICT applications, adding to the 16th round of Cairo ICT a new dimension and special focus on international presence, and new trends that open wide new vistas of profit-making.
WSA is based on a unique mechanism of a global contest supported by national selections of best practice and a sequence of content-focused national and international events, content conferences and promotional exhibitions.
After having to postpone the Winners Events due to political turmoil to 2012, the highlight of the global WSA contest, the Winners Events, can finally take place in Cairo. From over 460 projects and 105 countries the WSA Grand Jury selected 40 WSA Winners in 2011.
WSA will celebrate the best e-content producers worldwide in cooperation with Cairo ICT 2012 and the Information Technology Industry Development Agency (ITIDA) under the patronage of the Minister of Communications and Information Technology H.E. Mohamed Salem. The cooperation between these four players guarantees high level audience and best networking options for winners, the Egyptian internet community and international guests.
WSA was initiated by Austria in 2003 in the framework of the United Nations' World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) and is organised by a global partner network, coordinated by the International Center for New Media. WSA partners come from governments, private sector and civil society in over 160 UN member states.
WSA implements the UN agenda for the development of the information society and supports specifically the UN Millennium Development Goals of ending poverty, hunger and disease, providing education for all, saving the environment and giving a fair share to women through the use of ICTs.
