*FRIDA eLAC 2010 Award Presented to the Region's 10 Most Outstanding 

The FRIDA Program is pleased to announce that the ten projects that have 
made the greatest contribution to the development of the Information 
Society in Latin America and the Caribbean in the past few years have 
been selected to receive the FRIDA eLAC 2010 Award.

These ten proposals were selected from among moren than 190 projects 
presented within the framework of a competition summoned earlier this 
year by FRIDA (www.programafrida.net), together with ECLAC, with the aim 
of recognizing those initiatives that had made the greatest contribution 
to the digital growth of the continent.

The awards ceremony took place this Sunday (November 21st), during the 
opening of the III Ministerial Conference on the Information Society in 
Latin America and the Caribbean (eLAC), which was held in Lima, Peru.

The ten award-winning projects can be found at: http://premiofrida.org

The winning projects were selected by a jury made up by renowned members 
of academia and regional experts on new information and communication 
technologies. Amparo Arango (República Dominicana), Valeria Bentancourt 
(Ecuador), Vagner Diniz (Brazil), Ida Holz (Uruguay) and Edmundo Vitale 

This jury also awarded a GOLD prize, to be shared by two different 
initiatives: STID- Telecom Solutions for Digital Inclusion (/STID- 
Soluciones de Telecom para Inclusión Digital, Brazil) and Network 
against Child Sexual Abuse (Red contra el abuso sexual infantil/, regional).

The FRIDA/eLAC 2010 awards are part of the FRIDA Program (Regional Fund 
for Digital Innovation in Latin America and the Caribbean), an 
initiative of the Latin America and Caribbean Internet Addresses 
Registry (LACNIC), with the financial support of the International 
Development Research Center (IDRC) and the Internet Society (ISOC). This 
year, the United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the 
Caribbean (ECLAC) also contributed significantly to this initiative.
