This serves the following goals:
- emphasizing the ongoing development and innovation in Plone
- highlighting the most interesting innovations for the community
- praising and celebrating the individuals moving Plone forward
- demonstrating the viability and reach of Plone for a wide audience
- generating buzz and traffic around Plone
How can you make a nomination?
Anybody can submit an entry for the Plone Innovation Awards contest on this site. Each entry results in a dedicated page on ploneawards.com which provides a Tweet button that functions as voting link.
Presenters at the Plone conference will be canvassed to provide a compelling image on their presentation, that can be used to create entries for most presentations at the conference.
Anybody can vote for any entry by tweeting that entries' url on Twitter. The only requirement is, that voters use the #ploneawards hashtag or @ploneawards tag in combination with a ploneawards.com url.
You can vote for multiple entries, and also vote multiple times for the same entry. We're measuring passion, not citizens.
This should generate a nice buzz on Twitter and drive traffic to ploneawards.com.
In a plenary session at the Plone conference, the top rated entries will be shown on screen and shortly narrated. A panel staffed by respected community members will select from the top-voted entries the winners in several categories.
The overall winner across all entries will receive a special attention.
