<p>
We want to give this award to a person who has made a great
contribution to the progress and development of free software (free as
in freedom; see <a href="/philosophy/free-sw.html">our definition of
free software</a>), through activities that accord with the spirit of
free software.</p>

<p>
Any kind of activity could be eligible—writing software, writing
documentation, publishing CDs, even journalism—but whatever the
activity, we want to recognize long-term central contributions to the
development of the world of free software.  “Accord with the
spirit” means, for example, that software, manuals or
collections of them (on tape or CD) must be entirely free.  (Once
again, that's free as in freedom;
see <a href="/philosophy/selling.html">our philosophy on selling free
software</a>.)  Work done commercially is eligible, but we want to
give awards to individuals, not companies.</p>

<p>
People such as Richard Stallman, Linus Torvalds, and Larry Wall, who
have already received this or other awards for their contributions,
are not eligible for the Free Software Award.</p>

<p>
The award committee members are Bruce Perens, Eric Raymond, Peter
Salus, Richard Stallman, and Larry Wall.</p>
