APC CHRIS NICOL FOSS PRIZE 2007 - Last days to apply!
Deadline: March 30 2007
=====================================================================

The APC Chris Nicol FOSS Prize recognises initiatives that are
making it
easy for people to start using free and open source software (FOSS).
The
prize will be awarded to a person or group doing extraordinary work
to
make FOSS accessible to ordinary computer users.

The APC FOSS Prize has been established to honor Chris Nicol, a long
time FOSS advocate and activist who for many years worked with APC.

We are looking for initiatives that:
* improve the accessibility to, knowledge of and/or usability of FOSS
* are user-oriented
* are documented so that others can learn from and replicate the
model
* have demonstrable impact and have increased the number of people
using
FOSS on a day-to-day basis

THE PRIZE IS OPEN TO: Any person or group anywhere in the world who
supports or promotes user-oriented free and open source software. The
application form must be completed in either English or Spanish
however
there are no language restrictions regarding the language of the
project. Small-scale activities are encouraged to apply.

THE PRIZE: US$ 4,000.00 may be shared by up to two initiatives at the
jury's discretion.

DEADLINE FOR NOMINATIONS: March 30, 2007
