WSA jury of Estonia nominates

Mail from Estonia, from Katri Ristal, the organiser of the World Summit Award local pre-selection in Estonia. She has done a nice job. She is a Kristal. I met her last year in Prague. When we asked her to organise the WSA local selection, she really went for it. And her efforts have now resulted in four Estonian nominations to go to the Grand Jury in Bahrain.

The nominations are:

1. e-learning Project: virtual ABC-book Virbits Producer: Estonian Academy of Arts

2. e-government Project: internet voting system, Producer: Estonian National Electoral Committee

3. e-health Project: Online Health Access Manager, Producer: Tervisepank OÜ

4- e-businessProject: My m-business, Producer: Mobi Solutions OÜThere were no suitable candidates in other categories.

The selection was made by:
Head of the Jury:
Mr Jaan Oruaas, Estionian Information Technology Society

Members of the Jury:
Ms Mall Maasik, SA Innove
Mr Ahto Kalja, Tallinn Technical University
Mr Linnar Viik, IT KollegeMr Teet Jagomägi, AS Regio
Mr Leo Võhandu, Tallinn Technical University
Mr Ardo Reinsalu, Docobo Ltd, WSA2003 e-health finalist
Mr Kristjan Mändmaa, graphic design professor in Estonian Academy of Arts

Looking at their first entry, I beleive that this was a EUROPRIX Top Talent Award entry of 2004.

Today the Dutch WSA jury convenes!
