UKUUG Award 2005

The UKUUG Award (previously known as the UKUUG Open Source Award) is given annually (if submissions of sufficient merit are received) for a significant contribution to free and open source software; this might be in the form of an article or paper, software product, or other contribution.

The purpose of the Award is to encourage and foster developers and other contributors in or connected with the British Isles. We are looking for a work or project that is, or might be, significant in the world of free and open source software. The Award is not limited to (recent) UK students although special encouragement is given to entries therefrom and the best of those entries will be recognized.

Initially, a one-page summary (accompanied by an abstract and a short biography of about 250-500 words) of the work should be submitted via www.ukuug.org/osa/submit. If the work is part of a joint project, the personal contribution should be stated clearly. The judging panel will include representatives from UKUUG, UK computer science departments, and the wider community. If the judges are unable to distinguish between the merits of the best candidates, the prize shall be divided accordingly. No person may be awarded the prize more than once.

UKUUG are giving a prize of £500, to which O'Reilly UK Ltd are generously adding both a pass to the Open Source Convention and monies towards travel and accommodation.
