The 2024 Open Education Awards for Excellence (OEAwards24) nomination period ended on June 30.

The first review shows that this year’s pool of nominations is strong and truly award-worthy, with over 110 133 people, resources, and projects nominated. We’ve also received a good balance of submissions across the four main awards categories, with 37 Individual nominations, 31 Open Asset nominations, 18 Open Practices nominations, and 27 nominations for innovations in the Special Awards category.

The nominations exhibit the global diversity of the open education community, with nominations received in English, German, French and Spanish. All the nominations currently gathered represent the full breadth of open education excellence from 29 countries – Argentina, Australia, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Cameroon, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Ireland, Mauritania, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom, United States, and Viet Nam.

What now?

In mid-July, the 29-member OEAwards24 panel, made up of previous award winners, will review and rate nominations. These will be ranked and compiled into the Shortlist of Finalists, which will be shared by August 30. The winners will be announced in a live online event on September 18.
