General Guidelines 

  • Candidates must be short and precise and make the digital project easy to understand. Avoid too long sentences and complicated technical terms.
  • Similarly, candidates fill in the application solely in ENGLISH and make sure that the URL to your project/product and the email they provided works.
  • They must be aware that an international jury is evaluating your project. E.g. if your project cannot be downloaded from the play store in some countries, please make sure that you give enough information, provide screenshots or a comprehensive presentation for the jurors.
  • WSA advises to first do their application in a word document and then copy paste to the database for easier structuring.
  • WSA tries to keep the application as short as possible; hence WSA  advises to fill in all fields, even if they are not obligatory.
