Just to point out that GeoVation, set up by Ordnance Survey, is  
offering prizes totalling £21K to help develop new ideas, and yes, OSM  
based projects are eligible and the judging panel is independent of  
the OS. Whatever the result it would be great to have some OSM related  
projects being put forward.

"A competition in which there is up to £21,000 to be won in awards to  
develop new ideas that use geography. Entries to the competition are  
open from the 6th of October 2009 until 11:59am on the 4th of January  
2010. Our judges are looking for ideas that can demonstrate their  
innovative potiential, sustainability and how they use geography. For  
more details see our Judging Criteria .

Out of the entries submitted on January 4th they will select a  
shortlist of up to 10 finalists who will be invited to present at the  
Show Case event, that will be held January 26th at the Royal  
Geographic Society in London. At the event finalists will be asked to  
present to and answer questions from the judges and assembled  
audience, for the opportunity to win one of four prizes. First prize  
is £10,000, two runner-up prizes of £5,000 and a community choice  
award, voted by the audience, of £1,000.
