OSM Awards 2018

This year, we are again presenting the OpenStreetMap Awards! Nine nominees will receive an award in nine categories at the State of the Map 2018 conference. This is a community award: you decide who the nominees are, before you vote for them.

Call For Nominees: Suggest a person, a group or an organization for an award. We only ask for three pieces of information: a name, a project (what did they do to claim an award), and optionally an URL for any web page that describes the project. Eligible is everything that was announced after 2017-07-01. The call for nominees ends on the 31th of May.

OSM core sysadmins
Do you remember the last downtime of the core OSM services (API, website, tile servers, wiki, mailing lists, forum) run by the OpenStreetMap Foundation Operations Working Group? Well, they do a great job day by day ensuring that we all can continue working on improving OpenStreetMap.
