Possibly with your help, Blender has been nominated for the Packt Open Source Graphics Software Award. The winner of this prize will receive $2500 - money that the Blender Foundation can put to good use!
The other nominees are Gimp, InkScape, jmonkeyengine and Scribus.
You can vote now. By voting you'll also have a chance to win an Amazon Kindle e-reader (which ironically enough is a very closed platform).
Voting ends on November 5th, and the winners will be announced on November 15th.
Done Also !

Choose the project you would like to win: *
IMO, that why I have to vote. Not for money but for Blender and Devs.
I want to show how much I ___ :P.
also done also..., ALSO!@# go blender!!!
Done. Hopes Blender wins!!!
Blender deserves to win.
Keep up the good work.
sure the blender foundation would do something useful with the prize, but aren't $2500 peanuts for them? the blender foundation is actually pretty rich compared to the other projects listed there.
Rule : Vote for your favorite Open Source Graphics Software
What a strange things that you not vote for your favorite
but vote cause you think, expected they may not have enough money.
Open Source not mean poor or lazy.
think about 1 year of blender compare to other pagkages
and vote for yourself not vote for others That is Democracy.
...Close your eyes ...ask yourself
What is my favorite Open Source Graphics Software?
Which one work hard all time, open hearth friendly community and deserves to win?
ofcourse for Blender 3D!
uggi: Peanuts? :P
Rich? Rather enough money to keep everything going and flexible.
I know they can use it really well for their projects.
I voted for Blender, but this could be a very close vote as there are a lot of Gimp users out there, me included. The reason i voted Blender is because of the speed of development and the way the devs listen to their users. I don't think any other software in the list can match that :-)
Good luck Blender!
blender deserves it - voting takes less than 1 minute.
I thought Blender was a shoe-in for this, then I saw Gimp on the list! Get out and vote for Blender! Gimp we love you too, but.....
but....it hasn't got that community spirit that Blender has. And they don't listen to their users. It is great software, very powerful, but i think Blender is just that little bit more special.
Done. One more vote for Blender.
GOOOOOO Blender ;)
feeling sorry fro gimp and inkscape nonetheless!
guys you can many times
kjust use e-mail adresses of your fiends ;)
did it 3 times already not going to stop sonn
blender would win any way ( i hope)
just post on facebook that u used them
Hi am harmony from nigeria, i voted for blender, i wish i could vote for gimp. But i know if blender go places it will automaticaly drag gimp with [email protected] larmann:unscropulous activities during elections is bad. That is the problem that the nigerian goverment is trying to fight
don't wanna give blender a bad name
one more for the home team
just voted for blender :)
really its a dificult choice
Blender is far better than any of the others! :P
Well, of course Blender got my vote!
Although i use GIMP a bit more often than Blender, i think the money will be better used in the hands of the Blender Foundation.
Blender for sure.The other softwares are great also, but I 'm a blenderboy ;)
Packt... hmm... No thanks.
They should be giving away an Open Pandora
