Just ran across this and it seems like a fantastic commemoration. From the article:
The APC Chris Nicol FOSS Prize recognises initiatives that are making it easy for people to start using free and open source software (FOSS). The prize is awarded to a person or group doing extraordinary work to make FOSS accessible to ordinary computer users.
The APC FOSS Prize has been established to honor Chris Nicol, a long time FOSS advocate and activist who for many years worked with APC.
The fact that “Small-scale activities are encouraged to apply” is great. There are so many deserving projects that I'm sure the soon-to-be-decided jury will have its work cut out for it.
