Zero Project for a world with zero barriers Meet your #ZeroCall22 Shortlist!

The Zero Project has announced the Shortlist for the 2022 Zero Project awards in the field of accessibility. 160 Innovative Practices and Policies from 54 countries made it to the coveted Shortlist this year.

The nomination process spanned from May 2021 to June 2021 and sought to identify Innovative Practices and Policies from civil society, the public sector, the business sector and the ICT sector. Overall, the Zero Project had received 381 nominations from 86 countries.

Starting from August 6, 2021, the Zero Project’s ecosystem and network will be given the opportunity to engage with – and vote – on the Shortlist of Innovative Practices and Policies. Based on these votes, the Zero Project team will select the Awardees in September 2021.
