Hurry! Nominate your free software heroes by Thursday!

Dear Free Software Supporters,

This Thursday is the deadline to nominate someone for the 15th annual Free Software Awards. The Free Software Awards recognize people and projects who have advanced free software and used it to benefit humanity.

Each year, the Free Software Foundation carefully reviews nominations submitted by you, our supporters. There are so many dedicated people and inspiring projects to choose from, but we need you to nominate them. So please, in this week before Thanksgiving, take a few minutes to nominate the people and projects for which you are most thankful for the Free Software Awards.

Nominations are due on November 15th--that's this Thursday. To nominate an individual for the Award for the Advancement of Free Software or a project for the Award for Projects of Social Benefit, send your nomination along with a description of the project or individual to award-nominations@gnu.org.

Your nominations will be reviewed by our awards committee and the winners will be announced at LibrePlanet 2013.

So check out our submission guidelines and get those nominations in to award-nominations@gnu.org by November 15th.

Thanks,
Libby Reinish
Campaigns Manager, Free Software Foundation
