Previously there was offline discussion to organize Magazine + CommBlog
community awards at Flock 2019. I wanted to re-surface this and see if
anyone wants to take lead on this idea for Flock 2019.
I thought it is a good engagement strategy to create community awards
for authors / editors of the Fedora Magazine + CommBlog. I took the idea
with their People's Choice and Editor's Choice
awards each year. Some ideas for awards were the following:
* Top 5 new contributors of 2019
* Editor's pick: Top 10 articles
* Author(s) of the Year
* Editor(s) of the Year
Ideally, awards should be as objective as possible.
Since not everyone who contributes is able to attend Flock, we could
also give out honorary awards for people who are unable to attend, and
accompany it with a published announcement to go out on the Magazine /
The Flock CfP is now open (https://flocktofedora.org
). Perhaps this
could be integrated into an evening activity or something at the end of
the conference (so an awardee who might be tied up in other sessions
would have a chance to attend and be recognized).
The first round of feedback for this idea was positive. Does anyone have
an interest in leading this event with the support of our editor teams?
