Nominations for JCP Awards 2012 now open
We do love to see committed Java folk reward for innovation. The people who shape and guide Java will get the proper recognition they deserve as the 10th annual Java Community Process Awards are now open for nominations.
Members of the community across the JCP nominate worthy participants, Spec Leads, and Java Specification Requests (JSRs), rewarding their hard work and creativity that helps define the vision for Java Standard Edition (SE), Java Enterprise Edition (EE), or Java Micro Edition (ME) platforms. The fact that it is the the 10th awards ceremony shows you how much the JCP has done for Java.
- JCP Member/Participant Of The Year - recognising the corporate or individual member who has made the most significant positive impact on the community in the past year.
- Outstanding Spec Lead - recognising the person who has demonstrated ideal leadership qualities in leading a JSR for the Java community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME).
- Most Significant JSR - simply put the most game-changing JSR for the Java community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME) in the past year.
We've already got our nominations in mind, but it's not down to us - it's down to you. Nominations are now open until 16 July 2012 and you can submit nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form here. The winners will be revealed at October's JavaOne conference, with the unveiling taking place at the Annual JCP Community Party held in San Francisco.
There's also still time to vote in the JAX Innovation Awards too - so why not do both?
