Nominations are open for the 2020 Pizzigati Prize

Applications and nominations are now open for the $10,000 Antonio Pizzigati Prize for Software in the Public Interest. The deadline to apply or nominate is December 15, 2019, and the prize will be awarded in March at the Nonprofit Technology Conference in Baltimore.

The Pizzigati Prize is awarded to an individual who has created or led an effort to create an open-source software product of significant value to the nonprofit sector and movements for social change. Bob Russell, the 2019 winner, has worked with the Silicon Valley-based Community Technology Alliance to develop software that helps housing activists and their organizations get the right resources to the right people at the right time. The annual prize is awarded by the nonprofit organization Tides in honor of the late Antonio Pizzigati, an MIT-trained open-source activist.

How to apply

Because this is an annual prize with open nominations, we need your help! If you know of someone who is accelerating social change by working on incredible projects — particularly women and people of color — please nominate them for this year’s Pizzigati Prize. You can even nominate yourself!

Applications and nominations are open through December 15, 2019. Full details and nomination forms are available from Tides.
