Subject: Community Choice Awards: Finalist Notification

Hi! We have just finished tallying the nominations for our fourth
annual SourceForge.net Community Choice Awards, and I have great news.

Your project, Avogadro, has been chosen as a finalist in Best Project
for Academia.

This year, we want our voters to know as much as possible about your
project…but we need your help!

In order to accept your nomination, please respond to this email with
the following info before June 17th:

  1. Complete this sentence in about 140 characters: “Our project is
    [-foo-].” For example, “Our project is a tool that helps you wash
    your
    car.”

  2. Complete this sentence, also in about 140 characters: “We should
    win
    because [-bar-].” For example, “We should win because we have a
    strong
    community and we solve a universal problem.”

  3. Please provide a logo (or screenshot, if you’d prefer) for your
    project. It should be at least 640x480, but we’ll also be showing it
    as a thumbnail.

  4. This one is optional, but it could make a big difference. We’d
    like
    to show our voters a video that introduces them to the core members of
    your team. Send along the URL (on YouTube) and we’ll make sure they
    see it!

  5. In some cases, I’m mailing several people in your community because
    I don’t know who the right person is. If you’re not the right person
    for me to be dealing with, please let me know. I certainly don’t want
    to be irritating.

  6. Our finalists are usually pretty interesting people. Are you
    willing to be contacted by our public relations team about interviews
    with the press?

Thanks in advance for your responses. If we don’t receive this
information by June 17th, your position as a finalist may be given to
an alternate in your category - we’ll be kicking off the final vote on
the 22nd, and we have to have time to put everything together!

Congratulations on having such a dedicated community, and best of
luck!

Director of Community, SourceForge

I just got a copy too - I am glad I put us forward for it. We have some
time to prepare the material they requested. I am sure I will find time
to help with some of the material too!
