WSA Grand Jury special mentions

Not all exciting projects submitted to the WSA can win, that’s clear. But taking into account the different cultures and different levels of economic and technical development among the 168 participating countries, it is a matter of fairness to publish and showcase not only the best 40 projects. This is why the jury awarded several special mentions.

If a world region – (i) North America, Australia & New Zealand; (ii) Latin America & the Caribbean; (iii) Asia; (iv) Europe; (v) Africa; (vi) the Arab countries & the Middle East – was not present among the best five products in each of the eight WSA categories, the Grand Jury selected the top-ranked product of this region and honored it with a special mention.

This way, the state of excellence and the development of the e-Content industry in all the world regions of the WSA 05 can be showcased and demonstrated.
