Nominations Open for ALECSO Apps Award Third Edition

Nominations are open for the Third Edition of ALECSO Award for Mobile Applications (Alecso Apps Award) 2017 until May 15, where the final ceremony will be held in Tunis, Tunisia. Alecso Apps is an annual award assigned to the best Arab completed applications in the fields of education, culture, science and educational games.

The Award falls within the framework of a broader project implemented by the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO), aiming to provide technological and institutional environment necessary to contribute to the emergence of an Arab industry for smart phones and digital tablets applications. This will be attained via contributing to the development of a common Arab vision for the sector, developing Arab specialized human resources and facilitating and promoting the production of mobile applications. A special award for People with Disabilities (PwDs) applications will be launched in the current edition, in collaboration with Mada, Qatar Assistive Technology Center.

The previous two editions witnessed a large turnout of mobile application developers, where more than 1,350 contestants from 19 Arab countries competed—in the 2016 edition—to win the award in its four categories: education, culture, science and educational games. Winners of the second edition were announced in the closing ceremony hosted in Dubai, UAE on 19 November 2016, where 55 candidates from 19 Arab countries participated.
