Last Chance to Vote for PacktPub's 2011 Open Source Awards

Posted by Kerstin Schuman on 28 October 2011

There are only a few more days to vote for SilverStripe in PacktPub’s 2011 Open Source Awards. Public voting closes on Monday 31 October. We are proud to be a finalist in the Open Source CMS category. Last year we came in second and this year we are eager to take home the grand prize!

The PacktPub Award is arguably the biggest in the Open Source CMS world, recognising and rewarding the efforts of open source communities by a combination of public voting and a panel of judges to determine the overall winner. Winning this award means acknowledgement of the community for the value you have added by using the SilverStripe CMS, and contributing to its code, documentation, and community posts and comments.

If you use it and you like it, please take a moment to vote for SilverStripe in the Best CMS category and in the Open Source CMS subcategories. In particular, we pride the SilverStripe CMS on its ease of use and strong community involvement, which are fortunately standalone subcategories this year.

The competition is now open to public voting and is in its final stage, so cast your vote now as every vote counts! You will also go in the draw to win an Amazon Kindle. To read more about the competition, visit

  • Scratch that last comment of mine. I got it to load. Must have been something on my part. I see that Drupal took the title for the CMS category. Sorry, better luck in 2012!!!

  • So can we get an update as to whom won the grand prize? I searched but wasn't able to find out who won the award. I am a big fan of open source software and like how it helps to encourage one group to work off the ideas of another to create better and better products. Software applications have taken drastic steps forward during the past decade and I can't wait to see how much software will advance over the next decade.
