The award is given under the auspices of the United Nations in eight categories. The jury has chosen five best nominations for each category out of 386 submissions.
The projects were nominated at the state level and then went through two rounds of qualifications. The first jury was composed of international experts who conducted their deliberations online for eight categories. Then, the Grand Jury chose the final five best projects per a category.
In the final round, a Bulgarian platform for recognizing and managing photos, Imagga, was declared “The world champion” during the global conference held in Singapore.
