It may have attracted accusations of exploitation, but charitable Cambodian data-entry outfit Digital Divide Data will collect a "Cyber Oscar" tonight at the World Summit on the Information Society in Switzerland.

DDD is one of more than 20 organisations so honoured by the Global Knowledge Partnership for outstanding contributions to the GKP's aim of "Working together to help people and communities access knowledge to improve lives, reduce poverty, and empower people".

Also stepping up for a gong in one of the four categories are projects from Australia, Bolivia, Namibia and Nepal and elsewhere. All winners "rely heavily or entirely on information and communications technologies (ICTs) to achieve their goals".

GKP chairman Walter Fust said: "These awards are an integral part of GKP's efforts to enhance global understanding and appreciation of how ICTs can be used strategically and innovatively to solve problems for individuals, communities and nations."

Good show. Our congratulations go out to all these Oscar recipients:
