The OSMF have opened the nomination process for their OSM Awards 2019. Is there anyone who you think we should be nominating? I think we should put at least one person forward from the UK community, if not more. Suggestions welcome (or just submit them directly yourself).

Deadline is 15th July!!

Having a look at the nominees-so-far can be a good way to understand the categories and help inspire people that should get nominated. I spotted we already have some UK people nominated...
- Core: The OSM Sysadmins, would include a few people.
- Writing: SK53, does loads of mapping and writing in Nottingham & surrounding area.
- Writing: Anonymaps, I think might be British, but it's still not public who she/he is.
- Community: Brian Prangle , was a director of OSM UK up until this weekend. He also led organisation of SotM 2013.
- Team: Data Working Group, I think includes some UK based OSMers, perhaps not as much as the OSM SysAdmins.
