Nominations Open for Public Interest Computing Prize

The Tides Foundation is accepting nominations for the sixth annual $10,000 Antonio Pizzigati Prize for Software in the Public Interest, the nation's highest honor for software developers working with nonprofits to help advance innovative social change.

Each year, starting in 2006, the Pizzigati Prize has accepted nominations of talented and creative individuals who have developed open source software products that demonstrate impressive value to the nonprofit sector. Tides welcomes nominations from both developers and the nonprofits who work with them.

The Pizzigati Prize welcomes applications from - and nominations for - single individuals. Those nominated for the prize should have developed a software product that is open source, as defined by the Open Source Initiative, and easily and widely available. The software must have already demonstrated its value to at least one nonprofit organization. Additionally, it should be a product that can be of value to multiple nonprofit organizations. Applicants will be evaluated on a range of criteria by an advisory panel that includes past winners of the prize.

Complete prize guidelines and nomination instructions are available at the prize Web site.
