ESCWA Launches Digital Arabic Content Award


The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), in partnership with the World Summit Awards (WSA), has launched the Digital Arabic Content Award that recognizes efforts to develop digital Arabic content for sustainable development in the Arab region.
 
The Award will be delivered annually, targeting institutions and young entrepreneurs from all Arab countries, with the aim to highlight the benefits of digital technologies for advancing sustainable development, and promote the creation of quality content related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
 
Applications are open to institutions and young entrepreneurs from Arab countries, who have created digital Arabic content applications or products that have a clear impact on society. Institutions can be public or private, academic or non-governmental, and young entrepreneurs can be from formal startups, teams of young people, or individuals younger than 35 years.
 
The rules and conditions for participation are set by a joint ESCWA-WSA steering committee, and submissions will be evaluated by a jury of experts, leading to the selection of winners and announcement of their awards at the Arab Forum for Sustainable Development 2022 (AFSD-2022).
 
Applicants can submit their applications before September 30. For more info, kindly click here.
