Last week at the World Summit Award, a UN-based initiative to promote the world’s best e-content, 40 winning projects were announced. One of them is a little game about a robot who wants to learn more about physics. Play Ludwig, from Austria, was singled out in the category of e-Entertainment & Games. Ludwig showcases a trend in the world of digital content: learning something in a playful way. I-MOVE to Learn for example, is the Chinese winner in the category of e-Health & Environment. This is a training platform, developed by physiotherapists, for children with motor delay and coordination problems. I-MOVE to Learn motivates children with funny graphics, challenges and the help of motion detection sensors to gain better control of their bodies.

Forty projects out of 461 nominees were honored as WSA-Winners in eight categories: e-Government & Open Data, e-Health & Environment, e-Learning & Science, e-Entertainment & Games, e-Business & Commerce, e-Culture & Tourism, e-Media & Journalism and e-Inclusion & Empowerment. In each category there were five winners. Projects from Saudi Arabia were singled out in two categories. In the e-Government & Open Data category, Saudi e-Gov from the Yesser e-Government Program was honored. In the category of e-Inclusion & Empowerment, TAM from Tam Development LLC is a contestant for the best in its category.

The 40 WSA-Winners have been invited to travel to the World Summit Award Global Congress 2013 in Colombo, Sri Lanka, from October 23 to 26. There they will have the opportunity to promote their projects in front of a huge international audience, get input from ICT-experts and do some intense workshops. Also, eight winners will be chosen as the best in their categories – the WSA Champions of 2013.
