The Open Source Award 2016 is to honour companies, authorities, developers or individuals who use and disseminate Open Source software. The Swiss Open Systems User Group announced recently that applications are now open for Open Data projects as well. This will build synergies among Open Source communities operating globally.
The call for applications is open until the 8th of July 2016 and all applications will be published in September. The winner will be announced during the Open Source Business Forum in Bern on 26 October. The Open Source Awards have been organised twice before, in 2014 and 2015.
