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.

Mats’eliso Thobei (tshedy)
For her OSM Diary #HelpTshedyMap which affirmed her passion to improve/add OSM data in her home country Lesotho by conducting a #OneWomanMapathon from April 26 10am to April 27 9:59am. Tshedy live-tweeted her map changes and updates during the 24hr mapathon. She may not have reached her goal of 5M map changes (yet) but she surely has inspired us all to continually contribute in improving the Map.
