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.

tshedy
Tshedy's (Mats’eliso Thobei) work should be well known in the OSM Community: she has been the most active mapper in Lesotho more or less since she started mapping 3 years ago (http://hdyc.neis-one.org/?tshedy): and has long since had the nickname of the "Lesotho Mapping Queen". In addition to her commitment to mapping she has has written blog posts, trained other mappers. More recently she has been actively mapping in Ireland, contributing Mapillary traces and taking a leading role in the establishment of the OSM-Ireland chapter. Map Lesotho is a project which is all about teamwork, so it may seem invidious to single out one person, but I believe her sheer joie-de-mapping is hard to beat anywhere. This is just one example of her infectious enthusiasm https://www.maplesotho.com/blog/2015/10/21/use-of-apps-in-mapillary-phones-make-maplesotho-enjoyable/.
