The 2010 New Zealand Open Source Awards are now open for nominations at

This year's Awards will focus particularly on achievements from over the past two years.

"There were so many strong nominations for the 2008 event," said panel chair Don Christie, "that we are keen to hear back from projects that have moved forward in the last years, as well as new initiatives using free and open source solutions."

Two new categories are being included this year: Open Source Use in The Arts, and the People's Choice Award for Open Source.

The 2010 Awards have already attracted sponsorship from Silverstripe, Open Systems Specialists, the New Zealand Open Source Society and Awards organiser Catalyst IT.

The 2008 NZOSAs were a resounding success with over 130 nominations received, 32 finalists and 10 category winners with the awards gala attracting over 200 of New Zealand's leading business people, government representatives, creatives and open source community contributors and advocates.

The 2010 Awards will be held on 9 November.
