The World Summit Awards are a unique awards system, selecting and promoting local digital innovation with high impact on improving society. Combining an ongoing series of international events and activities with a global network of start-ups, social entrepreneurs, mentors, jurors, speakers, experts, government leaders, academia and civil society, WSA is an international platform for cut edge examples on how ICTs can have an impact on society.
Running 15 years by now, WSA has become a quality seal for digital content with societal impact in over 180 participating countries.
World Summit Awards are conducted by ICNM, an Austrian not-for-profit organisation based in Salzburg and Vienna, Austria.
ICNM organizes national, regional and global competitions to demonstrate the richness and diversity of digital media with societal impact. ICNM was founded by Prof. Peter A. Bruck in 2002.
In 2017, the Kuwiat Foundation for the Advancment of Sciecnes (KFAS) nominated the New Muslim site as the national nominee to participate in the World Summit Awards in the category of Inclusion and Epowerment.
