The World Summit Award (WSA) selects and promotes the world's best digital innovation, be it eg. webpages, applications, kiosk installations or interactive productions.

Founded in 2003 as follow-up initiative to the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Geneva. The declared aim of the conference was to make Information and Communication Technology (ICT) accessible to everyone and to bridge the digital divide. The World Summit Award (WSA) was established as a means to achieve these goals.

The World Summit Award Mobile (WSA-mobile) selects and promotes the world's best mobile content and applications.

Founded in 2010 as the sister to the World Summit Award, WSA-mobile aims biannually  to raise public awareness and recognition for the highest quality, most innovative e-Content produced worldwide and to make the best products accessible and meaningful around the world.

The World Summit Award and its global network use twelve years of expertise to answer the question: "In our Information Society that constantly overwhelms us with information, products, and services, how can we know which mobile start-ups are making the most impact and effort to change our lives and our world?"

The World Summit Youth Award (WSYA) is a unique global contest which brings together young developers and digital entrepreneurs - under 30 years of age - who use internet and mobile technology to put the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)into action and make a difference.

The WSYA selects and promotes best practice in e-Content. It demonstrates young people's potential to create outstanding digital contents and serves as a platform for people from all UN member states to work together in the efforts to reach the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).





The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Impact Award is a new initiative by World Summit Award in partnership with Millennium@EDU Sustainable Education as a special recognition for applications tackling the United Nations SDGs.

The current international development agenda is centred on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) that were officially established following the Millennium Summit of the United Nations (UN) in 2000. The target date for the achievement of the MDGs is at the end of 2015.
