If you are new to the word “J!OSCAR Award “ let me clear the air a bit. J!OSCAR Award [Joomla Open Source Creative and Artistic Recognition Award] was created to recognize the potential and contributions of individuals/teams for Joomla based projects. These contribution include awards for outstanding plug-ins, modules, components, websites, templates as well as awards for people who have done exceptional work in adding to Joomla’s success. The event was created in 2010 at J! And Beyond conference in Wiesbaden, Germany and now follows into its 2nd year. The best part of this awards is that anyone in the community can submit a site, project/extension or recommend a person for an award nomination.

For the year 2011, J!OSCAR will be handing out the following awards:

The nominees have been shortlisted and the list could be seen here. The voting will be counted from the J! and Beyond 2011 conference attendees to get a winner in each category. Developers, implementers and bloggers from around the world will assemble together at the conference from 6 May through 8 May at the Rolduc Conference Centre in Kerkrade, Netherlands. For more information or if you are interested in attending the ceremony go to the official website. Let’s hope the best wins again.
