The Open Cannes Awards 2012
Tuesday, 24 April
Cannes … the Riviera ... warm, sun-drenched beaches … cool, breezy nights … the site of the most prestigious awards ceremony in the world ...
We refer, of course, to The Open Cannes Awards, presented by The Open Group! As you might tell from the title, although we take seriously the contribution made by our members, The Open Cannes Awards are not entirely serious. This April, as in Cannes in 2002 , and Washington D.C in 2006 , we expect everyone to have some fun, remember the past a little and look eagerly forward to the new challenges ahead. And although it is optional, the majority of people took the opportunity to dress up in their tuxes and posh frocks at the past two events!
The goal is to acknowledge the success stories, the hard work and dedication that members, either as individuals or as organizations, have devoted to The Open Group's ideals and vision over the past decade.
Voting is now complete and the awards will be presented at the gala ceremony on the night of Tuesday, April 24.
