Prix Ars Electronica

Prix Ars Electronica [1], the leading award honoring creativity and innovation in digital media, has chosen Global Voices for Honorary Mention [2] in their Digital Communities category this year. This is the second time Global Voices earns a special mention, after winning a Distinction in the same category in 2008.

The winner is Project Fumbaro [3] in Eastern Japan, a grassroots platform originally set up to cope with human emergencies after Japan's great earthquake in 2011. A number of Global Voices partners and friends are among the distinctions and honorary mentions, including Freemuse [4], Arseh Sevom [5], Desarrollando América Latina [6], and Syria Untold [7].
