2015 WASPY Award Nominations



It’s that time of year again to start thinking about those individuals who go the extra mile, yet they never seem to receive the recognition they deserve. 


This year’s categories incorporate both our core values and our annual report theme. Hoping to identify more people within our community who “fly under the radar” individuals may nominate 1 person per category from each of our 7 regions.  Although you may, you do not have to nominate a person for each category or region. 

To learn more about the 2015 WASPY Awards including the timeline and rules, please visit https://www.owasp.org/index.php/WASPY_Awards_2015

Categories for WASPY Awards
1. Open/Leading -  This award goes to a member of the OWASP community who has supported the OWASP mission of transparency through their influence, management, and leadership in the community. This might be a chapter or project leader or may be someone who has worked within the community.
 
2. Integrity/Learning - OWASP is an honest and truthful, vendor neutral, global community. This award goes to an individual who recognizes the benefits of the power of the collective community within OWASP, who challenges the status quo, and generates an excitement in the learning community.

3. Innovation/Sharing - OWASP encourages and supports innovation and experiments for solutions to software security challenges. This award goes to an individual who has inspired and encouraged others in the arena of software security with innovative and cutting edge solutions to software security challenges.

4. Global/Growing - Around the world, OWASP encourages and supports innovation and experiments for solutions to software security challenges. This award goes to an individual who truly represents the OWASP Global scope and recognizes the importance of growth. The nominee reaches out beyond the OWASP circle to raise awareness of software security in locations outside of the OWASP comfort zone. 

Does that sound like someone you know? Nominate them now!
