Hi everyone,

I wrote some weeks ago about OpenStreetMap awards, which we plan to 
grant at the next State of the Map conference. I am happy to announce 
the opening of the call for nominees!


There are six categories: Core Systems, Innovation, Writing, Mapping, 
Community and the Ulf Möller Memorial Award. You can nominate up to ten 
people, groups or organizations for each. Right now the database is 
empty, and I decided to give OSMF members a headstart to fill it up a 

Eligible are projects or other things that were announced between 
2015-08-01 and 2016-08-01 (that is 1st of August).

There are also voting buttons (+1). You can vote for at most five 
nominees. The voting is preliminary: it will help us to decide which 
nominees would go into the "short list" to be voted on later.

The call for nominees will end on 27th of August. Until then you are 
free to add more nominees or change your mind about some.

The source code for the website is open, and I invite you to add 
translations to your languages:


If you find the design of the web site a bit rough, improvements to css 
and html are also welcome :) Though the main point now is to collect as 
many nominees as we can remember.

Looking forward to publishing a list of the most influential projects of 
the past year,
