The 2011 Open Source Awards was launched on the 1st week of August by Packt, inviting people to visit www.PacktPub.com and submit nominations for their favorite Open Source project. Now in its sixth year, the Awards continue in its aim of encouraging, supporting, recognizing and rewarding all Open Source projects.
The 2011 Awards will feature a prize fund of $24,000 with several new categories introduced and the vote of the public becoming more influential. This year all CMS projects will compete in an even tighter contest in the Open Source CMS Award category with the now defunct Hall of Fame CMS finalists re-entered into the CMS category. Projects such as Drupal and Joomla! will face off with CMS Made Simple and MODx for the first time since 2008. “We expect the Awards this year to be bigger and better.” said Julian Copes, organizer of this year’s Awards.
