Hi everyone,

I've spoken with the coordinators of the World Summit Awards, and
they've supplied me with PDF files summarizing the awards that are
accessible via online PDF-to-HTML converters. (Previous versions of
the documents were locked and totally inaccessible.) This will allow
people who can't access PDF files because of low bandwidth or visual
impairments to put them in a converter and read the text. The files
are available in English, French and Spanish.

If you are unable to open the PDF, you can go to
http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/access_simple_form.html and
submit the PDF file's URL in the form.

Below is a list of countries that as of today have not received any
expert nominations, so if you are from any of these countries, I'd
strongly encourage you to apply by visiting
http://www.europrix.org/wsis-award/content/register.htm. Experts
selected will serve as judges for their country in the competition.
Nominations are due August 24. For more information, please contact
