There are just ten days left to nominate yourself, your friends, and your favorite IT people for the 2010 SysAdmin of the Year Awards.

We’ve already seen a high volume of nominations, particularly in the Flying Solo and Shoestring Budget categories. It’s clear that there are many SysAdmins out there who are making great things happen with limited help, and a limited budget; these two categories are seeing some of the stiffest competition.

Categories where there have been fewer nominations (fewer nominations being equal to a better chance of taking home a cash prize) include :

  • Best Disaster Response Award
  • Neat Freak Award
  • Large-Scale Deployment Award
  • DevOps Award
  • And the late addition, K–12 Award

It’s easy to send in a nomination. Just email awards at opendns dot com with the award category in the subject line. Follow the instructions for the category in your submission.

And once you send in a nomination (or two!), make sure to RSVP for our System Administrator Appreciation Party on July 28 in San Francisco. Cash prizes, celebratory parties, and even some potential giveaways — who loves SysAdmins more than we do?
