BASS was nominated as best national digital solution for Philippines for the international World Summit Awards. ProjectBASS.org was formed to enable volunteers to map the internet quality in the Philippines.
The WSA 2017 nominees will be evaluated based on seven fundamental criteria: Content, Functionality, Design, Technology, Innovation, Impact and Global/UN value.
The WSA nominees are selected carefully by the WSA National Experts from more than 178 UN member states. The WSA National Experts nominate up to eight projects for each country – one for every WSA category.
A nomination to the WSA is already and award in itself – the qualification to compete on an international level and being the best practice in Inclusion and Empowerment nationally.
