Open, Perhaps?

The big news about our awards program this year was that we decided to allow nominations for any open source project, not just those on SourceForge.net. We know that the success of open source is bigger than one repository can contain, and we’re proud to report that 17 of our finalists were hosted elsewhere!

Rewarding Communities

Some awards are presented to individuals, but that’s not what this program is about. Everyone knows what a few geeks in a garage can accomplish, but support from a community of scale is what really makes open source a force to be reckoned with.

The Choice Is Yours

We didn’t pick winners. Heck, we barely even set any rules. Sure, we could just decide who we think is the best, but what fun is that? Wouldn’t you rather hear the community speak for themselves? We think so too.
