World Summit Awards – Australia 2020

Date/Deadline: 30 Sep, 2020

The World Summit Awards are a unique awards system, selecting and promoting local digital innovation with high impact on improving society.

It is a non-monetary award system with a focus on sustainable knowledge transfer through a worldwide network. Winners benefit not from a one-time financial reward, but a lifelong partnership and integration.

The World Summit Awards are also a nomination based award system. To participate you need to be nominated by a WSA National Expert as the best national digital application in one of the 8 categories. The nominations to WSA are possible through national contests and national expert panel selection. Each country can only nominate one project/solution per category.

Through this high-level selection system, please be aware that every country has their own deadlines for the call. The generally communicated WSA deadline is the timeframe of the global call and communicates the last possible date of a nomination by the national expert panel.

WSA categories reflect the UN WSIS action lines and are updated regularly to meet the development of the markets. For the edition of the World Summit Awards 2020 the categories are:

  • GOVERNMENT & CITIZEN ENGAGEMENT – services | open data | democratic participation
  • HEALTH & WELL BEING – medical care | sport | lifestyle
  • LEARNING & EDUCATION – knowledge | science | skills
  • ENVIRONMENT & GREEN ENERGY – climate | sustainable resources | agriculture
  • CULTURE & TOURISM – heritage | entertainment | subcultures
