SourceForge, a global online network for community-driven tech media and e-commerce, is inviting nominations for the fourth annual Community Choice Awards. The awards program aims to promote open-source software projects.

“These awards showcase innovators who work together to create something new and fantastic,” said Ross Turk, SourceForge director of Community. “Unlike most award programs, we don’t have a panel of experts choosing our finalists because we want the open-source community to tell us, first hand, what the most exciting projects are. That’s why we need your nominations.”

The categories for the 2009 Community Choice Awards are:

  •        Best Project
  •        Best Project for the Enterprise
  •        Best Project for Gamers
  •        Best Tool or Utility for SysAdmins
  •        Best Visual Design
  •        Best Tool or Utility for Developers
  •        Best Commercial Open Source Project
  •        Best Project for Academia
  •        Best Project for Multimedia
  •        Best Project for Government
  •        Most Likely to Change the Way You Do Everything
  •        Best New Project

Nominations will be accepted until May 29, and the ten projects with the most nominations in each category will become finalists. The winners will be announced at an event in San Jose, CA, on July 23.
