Nextcloud wins the Acteurs du Libre European Award 2023

Nextcloud has won the European Award of the Acteurs du Libre contest! This is a huge recognition for the community, the Nextcloud team, and the visionary leaders behind the project.

What is the Acteurs du Libre contest?

The Acteurs du Libre contest is part of the Open Source Experience event, which celebrates the achievements of Free Software companies, entrepreneurs, projects and associations. The contest awards six prizes every year, each honoring a different aspect of FOSS development, management or implementation: the Committed Public Service Award, the European Award in collaboration with APELL, the Business Development Award, the Best Open Source Strategy Award, the Open and Ethical Digital Award, and the Jury’s Special Award.

Why did Nextcloud win the European Prize?

The European Prize, given in collaboration with APELL (European Free Software Professional Association), recognizes open source organizations based in Europe, but outside of France, that have successfully led the commercial development of an open source project. The evaluation of the proposals and the award ceremony is organized in collaboration with APELL. Nextcloud founder Frank Karlitschek was invited on stage to receive the prize and thank everyone who made this possible.

This is a fantastic achievement for the Nextcloud team and the community that supports Nextcloud.

Open Source Experience is a two-day event that brings together more than 6,000 open source enthusiasts, developers, decision-makers, and influencers from various sectors and industries. The event features an exhibition area where you can meet and interact with over 150 exhibitors. The event also offers a rich and diverse program of presentations, workshops, round tables, and keynotes covering a wide range of topics related to open source.
