Projects from Fiji, Vanuatu and Solomon Islands have been put forward for the 2007 World Summit Awards for e-content.

The final results of the awards, which recognise attempts to span the digital divide, are to be announced on the 10th of September in Croatia.

The New Zealand co-ordinator for the World Summit Award, Jan Bieringa, says the beauty of the WSA is the opportunity to take the best from the Pacific into an international arena.

Jan Bieringa, says she has been overwhelmed by the calibre of the Pacific entries.

"I am absolutely thrilled and delighted that people were wanting to see it happen, so yes, I am very impressed."
