The app ‘Touch Van Gogh’ is the winner of the World Summit Award Mobile in the ‘m-Tourism & Culture’ category and has been awarded ‘Gold’ in the ‘Best App’ category of the International Design and Communication Award (IDCA).

The international competition World Summit Awards takes place every two years and focuses on the selection and promotion of apps that are most innovative and offer the most excellent interactive content. Herman van Oorschot, international expert on behalf of the World Summit Award Mobile, states that the Touch Van Gogh app has successfully past a critical test: “We selected four apps from the Netherlands that can compete on an international platform. After the 18 members of the jury from 18 countries of all continents came to their decision, Touch Van Gogh was selected as one of the five winners in the m-Tourism & Culture category.”
