This initiative responds to the requests of participants of WSIS Forum 2011 for a mechanism to evaluate and reward stakeholders for the success of their efforts in implementing development-oriented strategies that leverage the power of information and communication technologies (ICTs). The new WSIS Project Prizes now form an integral part of the WSIS Stocktaking Process established in 2004.

WSIS Project Prizes 2012 containing 18 categories was created to encourage all groups of stakeholders, from all over the world, to share their experiences on WSIS implementation and leverage its activities.
