The JCP Award nomination period will be open until August 17. The

Descriptions of the 2015 JCP Award Categories:
JCP Member/Participant of the Year - This award recognizes the corporate or
individual member (either Member or Participant) who has made the most
significant positive impact on the community in the past year. Leadership,
investment in the community, and innovation are some of the qualities that
EC Members look for in voting for this award.
Outstanding Spec Lead - The role of Spec Lead is not an easy one, and the
person who takes that responsibility must be, among other things,
technically savvy, able to build consensus in spite of diverse corporate
goals, and focused on efficiency and execution. This award recognizes the
person who has brought together these qualities the best in the past year,
in leading a JSR for the Java community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME).
Most Significant JSR - Specification development is key to the success of
the JCP program and helps ensure we remain a fresh and vibrant community.
This award recognizes the Spec Lead and Expert Group that have contributed
(either in progress or final) the most significant JSR for the Java
community (Java SE, Java EE or Java ME) in the past year.
Outstanding Adopt-a-JSR Participant - This award recognizes the Java User
Group (JUG) that has made the most exemplary contribution through the
Adopt-a-JSR program in the past year. The London Java Community and SouJava
initiated, and are thereby implicitly recognized, in this effort for JUGs
around the world to become more involved in the work of JSRs. Innovation,
community engagement and technical impact are some of the characteristics
that EC Members look for in voting for this award.
Nomination Form is open to the public for nominations until 17 August:
