OSM Awards 2019

This year, we are again presenting the OpenStreetMap Awards! Seven nominees will receive an award in seven categories at the State of the Map 2019 conference. This is a community award: you decide who the nominees are, before you vote for them.

Call For Nominees: Suggest a person for any of the categories of the award. We only ask for three pieces of information: a name of one or two individuals, a project (what did they do to claim an award), and optionally an URL for any web page that describes the project. Teams, groups and companies, commercial or not, can compete only in the "Team" category. Eligible is everything that was announced after 2018-06-01. The call for nominees ends on the 15th of July.

Антон Беличков
Один из администраторов сообщества RU-OSM. Он всегда мудро успокаивает неспокойные диалоги, а также старается "вести" новичков и подсказывает им как лучше всего редактировать OSM. Также он опытный осмер, который не один год (почти 10 лет) терпеливо рисуют карту родного города Магнитогорска (Россия) и Челябинскую область.

Brian Prangle
Continued work in the nitty-gritty of communities. Brian helped setup the West Midlands OSM group in then UK. Brian helped set up the OSM UK local chapter, and served as chair of the board for the first 3 years. When nobody else is replying to organisations and representing the OpenStreetMap community, Brian often steps up to the plate. Brian uses his time to get in touch with a lot of big organisations and local authorities, so that they know about OpenStreetMap and so that the local chapter has some money to work with and pay it's small bills with.
Yet in all of this, you still see Brian's love for the mapping when he sits talking to a couple of people and showing them how to map, encouraging them to use tools like the map editors and street-level cameras, regardless of their age or technical confidence.

Brian Hollinshead
Brian Hollinshead has been a tireless OSM mapper for years. He's helped extensivly with heritage mapping in Ireland, and with the multi-year townland project. He has often gone to historical societies and events to speak about, and promote, OSM to people who've never heard of it before. ( e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7pxfnD4aQTg ). This can help bring new mappers into OSM.
