Nominate Perl heroes for the 2014 White Camel Awards

We're looking for nominations for the 2014 White Camel Awards that recognize significant non-technical achievement in Perl and its community. Each year we recognize work in the broad categories of community, advocacy, and user groups.

01 - November - 2007 -- White Camel

To nominate someone, you can send me a name through any means you like. Reply here, post on Twitter (use the #whitecamelaward tag so I'll find it), send me email, hire planes to skywrite, or something more creative. Note, however, that the method of nomination does not factor into our decision!


I was surprised to discover that Mark Keating hasn't had one yet. I don't know how long he's been chief organiser of the London Perl Workshop (but it's longer than I've been attending); he's also been involved in enlightened perl and GSOC.

I can understand that - an organisation giving its awards to its own members might get some flak.
