The ICNM-International Center for New Media is a non-profit association founded in 2002 with headquarters in Salzburg and Vienna. Since then, the ICNM has designed and organized local, regional and international competitions and awards in order to evaluate, reward and support best practice solutions in the areas of digital innovations with added social value.
Competitions are an excellent mechanism to identify comparable, democratic and fair lighthouse projects, but also to place important topics, involve stakeholders and support strategic projects.

The ICNM organizes its own competitions (WSA, WSA Young Innovators), but also acts as a service provider and consultant for design and organization for external competitions:

  • Zero Project of the Essl Foundation
  • Josef Umdasch Research Prize
  • Public Administration Service Awards for the Western Balkan

The ICNM brings in its years of experience and offers a specially developed contest software solution that enables customized offers.
