I hope you are doing well and you found already some promising apps for this years´ WSA-mobile.

Just as a short reminder: Deadline will be July 15th 2014.

We highly recommend to submit your nominees earlier, so the producers still have time to complete their data.

I would like to bring also 2 other calls to your attention that you could share through your channels.

This year there are 2 open calls for young people using ICTs for a social cause.

(They can also submit their projects for both).
