WSIS Project Prizes 2012
This initiative responds to the requests of participants of WSIS Forum 2011 for a mechanism to evaluate and reward stakeholders for the success of their efforts in implementing development-oriented strategies that leverage the power of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The new WSIS Project Prizes now form an integral part of the WSIS Stocktaking Process established in 2004.
WSIS Project Prizes 2012 containing 18 categories was created to encourage all groups of stakeholders, from all over the world, to share their experiences on WSIS implementation and leverage its activities. The 18 categories of the WSIS Project Prizes 2012 are linked to the WSIS Action Lines outlined in the Geneva Plan of Action.
The contest is organized into four phases:
Phase One – Submission of project descriptions 10 October 2011 – 20 January 2012
Phase Two – Voting by the members of the WSIS Stocktaking Platform 25 January – 10 April 2012
Phase Three – Compilation of extended descriptions of the winning projects and preparation of “WSIS Stocktaking: Success Stories 2012” 10 April – 10 May 2012
Phase Four – The WSIS Project Prize Ceremony and release of the Success Stories 2012 publication at the WSIS Forum 2012 15 May 2012
