Prize for best ICT in development story
The annual competition is organised by the International Institute for Communication and Development (IICD), which helps developing countries to use the opportunities offered by ICTs, and the Information for Development Programme (InfoDev), a global grant programme managed by the World Bank, and has been running since 1998.
Previous winning stories covered topics such as ‘hole-in-the-wall’ Internet kiosks in India, the African virtual library initiative and installing Internet access in a rural township school in South Africa.
The prize is a free trip to Washington DC to the INET 2002 Conference — an international meeting on advancing the development and implementation of Internet networks.
The deadline for entries is 15 April 2002.
