RISC OS Awards logoThe annual RISC OS Awards poll is coming to an end. The voting form will be taken down at some point on Saturday, 26th May, which is just three days from now.

The RISC OS Awards provides you with a way to thank those companies and developers who have provided a good service, or developed something – hardware or software – that you feel is worthy of note. If enough people feel the same way as you, those you vote for effectively receive some recognition for their efforts, with that result published  on the RISC OS Awards and RISCOSitory websites.

If you haven’t yet voted, why not do so now?

The RISC OS Awards poll for 2017 has been open now since mid-March and will be coming to a close in a couple of weeks time. As such, now is an ideal time to take another look at some of the alternative nominations people have made if they felt something other than the options on offer deserve to win in any given category.

If you have yet to vote, please do so as soon as possible in order to your vote to be counted. Don’t forget that this is a good way for you to help highlight those things in the RISC OS world – both people, and products – that you think need to be highlighted.

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.

As usual, there are up to six initial suggestions in most categories, along with an option to make an alternative nomination, with a text field into which you can enter that alternative. Continue reading »

The RISC OS Awards poll for 2016 was brought to a close on 29th February. As before, the results were processed and counted on a RISC OS computer (using a home-brewed program to turn the votes into a file for each category, ready to be loaded into Fireworkz), and initially announced on the @RISCOSitory Twitter feed. Those results are now online on the RISC OS Awards website and the various winners have been notified – where possible – by email. Continue reading »

If you have yet to vote, here are even more options for you – so why not get voting NOW?

RISC OS Awards logoThe RISC OS Awards 2016 voting form was put online on 18th December, and while the number of votes looked promising compared to last year the first time the alternative options were published, this is no longer the case.

When the second round of alternative options were posted last year, approximately seven weeks after the polls were opened, the voting form had been completed approximately 140 times. Today – also about seven weeks in – the tally stands at around 120.

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

An updated look at the alternative options people have voted for so far.

RISC OS Awards logoThe voting form for the 2015 RISC OS Awards poll went live seven weeks ago tomorrow – and the current tally stands at a few short of 140. 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.
