Submit your Free Software projects for the Trophees du Libre

Cetril, the “Centre Europeen de Transfert et de Recherche en Informatique Libre” is once again organising the Trophees du Libre, an award for Free Software projects in various categories, focussed on unknown and innovative projects. The web page is now open for registration and you can download the PDF leaflet here. Deadline for registrations is 1 October 2007.

Having participated as part of the jury last year, I can say that this event has left me with a very positive impression: A clear focus on Free Software, professional organisation where the finalists’ present themselves in the afternoon to the responsible parts of the jury, and a very nice award ceremony.

Prizes for the 2007 awards include financial support for the projects from EUR 500 to EUR 3000, laptops, books, and other goodies. The idea of the award is to give new, young and hitherto unknown projects a chance of support, recognition and visibility. So don’t hesitate and submit your project today.
