As Tyler was saying a few weeks back, HOT are one of the top 3 finalists in the Social Impact category of the "Open Data Awards".
I'll be going along tonight, and hoping to pick up an award on behalf of HOTties everywhere. You can actually tune in and "listen live" on the website http://awards.theodi.org if you fancy it. The awards should be happening at 19:20 UK time http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20150709T1920&p1=136
So fingers crossed for an award!

Earlier Heather sent a note about HOT being shortlisted for an Open Data Award. I'm very happy to announce that HOT is now a finalist (one of the top 3 in the Social Impact category). This is something to be proud of, as HOT is one of only 15 out of 500 nominations to have this honor. This is all thanks to the work you are doing each day.

Dear Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team,
I’m writing to update you with you some good news – you have made it through to the final three as a finalist of the Social Impact category of the Open Data Awards 2015.
The judges found it really tough to pick their top three for each category and also commented on how high the standard of entries was this year.
What happens next?
It is very important that you, or a representative, are able to attend the awards ceremony on 9 July at the Bloomberg offices in London. The winner of each category will be announced on the evening and our founders, Tim Berners-Lee and Nigel Shadbolt will announce the winners and present them with their award trophy.
There will also be press opportunities for our finalists as part of the press room at the Awards - we have a number of journalists covering the evening, including Bloomberg who are our awards partner. There will also be an opportunity to have a winners' photo taken by our photographer should you win. You can find an agenda for the evening here.
