RISC OS Awards logoThe annual RISC OS Awards poll undertaken by RISCOSitory on the RISC OS Awards website is now under way – so you can now cast your votes.

The poll is running a little later than planned, but between now and late May you will be able to vote for your favourite piece of software, the show you enjoyed the most, the project you find most interesting, and so on.

The RISC OS Awards poll for 2016 was brought to a close on 29th February.

So if you have yet to vote, why not do so now? Continue reading »

This is a notable improvement on last year’s poll, which received around a hundred entries after being open for over two months, although still a little short of the previous year’s 150 – and ideally, even that could be bettered.

The voting form for the 2015 RISC OS Awards poll went live three weeks ago today, and there have so far been just over a hundred entries – which is still a long way short of the first poll run by RISCOSitory two years ago, in which there were around 150 votes, but already a match for last year’s poll (in fact, it’s a very small improvement), which received around a hundred entries after being open for just over two months.
