We just got this interesting news that TWO TV Network from Nigeria is nominated by an international jury of ICT experts to enter the next round of the 2013 World Summit Award (WSA) in e-Media & Journalism. TWO TV will compete against almost 500 outstanding e-Content products and applications from 168 countries in front of the WSA’s Grand Jury from Aug. 29 to Aug. 31 in Estonia’s capital city, Tallinn.
TWO TV Network (This Week On TV Network) is a live webTV hosting shows, web series, live events and programs in Africa. We are creating a platform for African countries to break the cable barrier that prevents the telling and sharing of their inspirational stories to the world.
In a three-day process in late August, the WSA Grand Jury, consisting of international renowned ICT experts and industry leaders, will meet in Tallinn/Estonia to evaluate the submissions from the remaining nominees and select the 40 best products. The jury members of the Grand Jury come from all continents and have backgrounds in the crea-tive industries, telecommunication, advertising, journalism and research, as well as in teaching. The jury will be hosted by national partners such as the Estonian ICT Cluster.
Finally, the 40 world’s best e-Content applications (5 products in each of the WSA cate-gories) are selected to present their products in front of an international audience in Co-lombo/Sri Lanka from Oct. 23 to Oct. 25.
