It’s time again for the Eclipse Community Awards

For the third year, the Eclipse Foundation is sponsoring its Eclipse Community Awards. Nominations have just opened, and the awards themselves will be presented on Mar. 17 at EclipseCon 2008.

Deadline for nominations is January 25, 2008. Individual Awards are given to the Top Committer and the Top Ambassador. You can submit your nominations by using the Foundations’s Bugzilla server, using the links above. Winners are chosen by vote of the community.

There’s a new category this year: Most Prolific Newcomer Evangelist. That’s for the individual who answer the most questions on the eclipse.org.newcomer newsgroup.

As in previous years, there are awards for development tools and RCP-based applications, plus two new categories for Equinox applications. Here, you e-mail your nominations to awards@eclipse.org. The winners of these awards are determined by a panel of judges. (I am a judge again this year.)

The categories for technology awards are:

• Best Open Source Eclipse-Based Developer Tool
• Best Open Source RCP Application
• Best Open Source Equinox Application

• Best Commercial Eclipse-Based Developer Tool
• Best Commercial RCP Application
• Best Commercial Equinox Application

Good luck, everyone!
