BPN 1320 - WSA 09 - Letter of Welcome

Dear WSA Grand Jury Member*,

Welcome to India!

We are delighted that you are able to take time out from your work commitments and join in the World Summit Award Expert Jury 2009. During the next 6 days you will have the almost impossible task of selecting the world’s best in e-Content and creativity. It is thanks to your support and work during this evaluation process that the best e-Content producers and designers will have their work recognised, celebrated and will hopefully enjoy new opportunities.

Besides the Winners Gala, which will take place on 12th June 2009 in Monterrey, Mexico, the WSA Grand Jury Meeting is definitely one of the most crucial events of the entire World Summit Award process. The act of bringing together 36 renowned experts from all over the world and making them work and live together creates a special atmosphere of unique intensity and suspense. It is a great and unforgettable experience, and this is well known to anyone who has ever been to such an event, be it for the WSA or other ICNM jury events like the EUROPRIX Multimedia Awards or Austrian State prize for Multimedia and e-Business.

Working at the jury meeting means 6 days of non-stop highly professional and creative work, of evaluating about 500 nominations, which this year have been submitted from 150 countries. Being part of the evaluation process thus also asks for finding ways to understand each other and to find a compromise, for trying to stick to the schedule while being open to open-end sessions. 36 jurors, 2 moderators and 7 staff from the WSA office in Austria will be part of it all – thanks to the the Ministry of Communications & IT, Department of IT, of the Government of India, which will host the event.

We are happy to answer any additional questions you may have and will all try to make your stay in Delhi both pleasant and enjoyable.

Let this experience will be both fun and enriching!

Warm regards,

Prof. Peter A. Bruck
World Summit Award Chairman of the Board
