The World Summit Awards (WSA) have been a resounding success for NZ
since 2003. The awards provide the opportunity to shift the focus
from technology, networks and access issues to the actual
applications, the resultant digital content and the visibility of the
applications to a global audience.
The WSA results in a global showcase of 40 outstanding projects, in
eight categories, with a special emphasis on those projects which show
the benefits of information and communication technology for the
development of communities and society at large.
