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 January 16, 2019, and the prize will be awarded on March 15, 2019, at NTEN’s Nonprofit Technology Conference in Portland, Oregon.
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. Previous winners of the Pizzigati Prize worked on everything from encrypted communications to helping citizen groups challenge election districts to code that’s opening up the 3D software to nonprofits, both in the United States and around the world. Organized by Tides, this is the 13th annual prize honoring the late Antonio Pizzigati, an MIT-trained open source activist.
