- around 5 members in the committee from different countries
- Committee members who have an actual or potential conflict of interest should not participate in voting

Welcome to the Competition Committee of Software Freedom International.
The SFD Competition Committee, as the name suggests, is tasked with processing and ranking the submissions of the yearly SFD competitions together with the SFI board directors.
Current Committee Members
Proposed Committee Members
GvR (or someone else) from the Python Software Foundation
Document Foundation (Libre~Office folks)
Steps of ranking
- Look at all the entries (usually we have around 30+ entries per year)
Everybody rank the entries from 0 to 20 (0 is the worst while 20 is the best) based on the rules on http://www.softwarefreedomday.org/en/competition (tbc)
- The top 3 to 5 teams (depends on our budget) who have the highest score get the awards
